Attacking midfielder Pius Obuya’s dream of playing for KCCA has ended even before it started, after the player failed to pass a medical examination at the club.
Obuya has been subject to a lengthy chase for his signature from the Kasasiro Boys with both parties reportedly agreeing to a three-year contract.
But just as it seems, a deal was close to fruition, but the player has been found to be carrying a hip and shoulder injury that will require immediate surgery and rule him out for close to a year.
The medical results and the fact that the player will be out for a long period have scared KCCA out of completing the deal with the former Maroons player.
“An agreement on personal terms was reached between KCCA and the player (Obuya), subject to undergoing a medical,” a source told Football256.
“However, during the medical examination, a problem was identified with his hip and shoulder that will require Obuya to have immediate surgery, and the club has decided to opt out of the deal.”
The left footed playmaker who made his Maroons debut at the age of 16 five years ago has been earmarked as a worthy successor to Allan Okello who left the club for Algerian side Paradou AC in January.
KCCA will now turn to other transfer targets in the place of Obuya as Mike Mutebi continues to give his side a rebuild for a pretty busy season ahead with the club keen on reaching the group stages of the CAF Confederations Cup.
The 13-time Uganda Premier League winners will also seek to dethrone champions Vipers at the top of the log next season.
The Kasasiro Boys have already confirmed six new additions including Brian Aheebwa, Charles Lwanga, Ashraf Mugume, Stefano Mazengo, Denis Iguma, and Bright Anukani.
