Uganda Premier League side URA FC have confirmed the signing of free agent Saidi Kyeyune on a three years employment contract.
Kyeyune returns to the tax collectors on following his departure from Sudanese side El Merreikh Omdurman earlier this year following a mutual agreement to terminate his contract.
The creative and joy-to-watch midfielder joined his former side at the start of this year after an amazing CHAN tournament with the Uganda Cranes where he scored two astonishing goals believed to have caught the eye of his suitors.
The buoyant midfielder spared some time to address the club’s media team and this is what he had to say:
“It’s always a pleasure coming back home and even better finding familiar faces at the club. I’ve been gone for less than a year now but everything seems already different and that excites me.”
Saidi Kyeyune not only brings experience and creativity with him but also an industry that has been exhibited by the choice of players the new URA era are trying to recruit under the stewardship of interim head coach Simeon Masaba.
Kyeyune is believed to have been keenly monitored and persuaded by Lugogo side KCCA FC but between the two rivals, the midfielder opted for a return to a familiar environment.
He adds to the growing list of new players that have joined the Tax Collectors including: Simon Baligeya (an academy graduate), Derrick Ndahiro, Andrew Okiring and Kabon Living from West Nile side Onduparaka FC.
Reports further link URA FC to agreeing a deal to land former Wakiso Giants forward Viane Ssekajugo while goalkeeper James Alitho is believed to have rejoined the club already.
The Tax Collectors are Uganda’s representative at the forthcoming CAF Confederation Cup and will play Ethiopia’s Coffee in the preliminary round.
