Despite reports of a sealed move to Czech Republican side FK Viktoria Zizkov, Bobosi Byaruhanga is yet to fully finalize a move away, and as things stand, he looks destined to stay at Vipers SC.
The 20-year-old was left out of the Kitende side’s confirmed list of exits, which includes the likes of Halid Lwaliwa among others.
With the 2022/23 Uganda Premier League slated to kick off on Friday, Bobosi could well be staying to see out his remaining one-year contract.
The Uganda Cranes midfielder has been training with the Venoms throughout preseason, but missed their two victories (4-0 on aggregate) against Olympic Real De Bangui in the CAF Champions League Preliminary Round.
As Cranes head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic named Uganda’s U-23 team for the mini-tournament in Libya a week back, Bobosi was however, listed as a Zizkov player.
The fact that he’s not formed a part of Vipers’ exits’ list, is a clear show a deal hasn’t been agreed with any possible takers.
The confirmed exits include former captain Lwaliwa who moved to North Macedonia to join FK Bregalnica Stip.
Cesar Manzoki also departed Kitende, after two hugely successful seasons with the club, with the Congolese-born forward moving to Chinese outfit, Dalian Pro.
Allan Kayiwa also left on a free transfer, joining Express FC following the expiry of his contract with the club.
Former deputy skipper Paul Willa, Ahmed Amayo, Brian Kalumba, and Denis Mwemezi were all released following the expiry of their contracts.
Meanwhile, Richard Basangwa’s loan move to Gaddafi Modern FC, which was confirmed in January was extended for a further season.
He was followed by youngsters, Umar Kyabatala and Lawrence Tezikya who moved to Prisons side, Maroons FC on season-long loans.
Defender Bob Olwoch, Emmanuel Munoobi, and Frank Kato Kizanyiro moved to Soltilo Bright Stars FC on a season-long loan apiece, while goalkeeper Mutwalib Mugolofa moved to Kyetume FC.
On the other hand, the Venoms have signed ten players, including Rodrigue Shamamba, Cromwell Rwothomio, Abdu Lumala, and Olivier Osomba.
Others are Alfred Mudekereza, Isa Mubiru, Ashraf Mandela, Murushid Juuko, Abubakar Lawal, and Marvin Joseph Youngman.
