Uganda Cranes striker Muhammad Shaban will leave KCCA FC when his contract expires at the end of this month.

KCCA FC have pulled the plug on extending Shaban’s employment contract in the latest dramatic development in a chaotic transfer window at Lugogo.

During an engagement meeting between board and the club fans that was held on Sunday, 23rd June at Lugogo, KCCA FC board Chairman Andrew Mukiibi Sserunjogi told the fans that the club didn’t have enough of a wage budget to offer their starman a new contract.

Sserunjogi reportedly told the fans that the club can’t afford Shaban for his ‘obscene’ wage demands. Sserunjogi revealed that Shaban wanted a sign on fee of Shs250 and Shs7M as monthly salary which the club is unwilling to meet.

Sources however reveal that Shaban was ready to renew in case the club gave him a sign on fee worth Shs100M and a monthly salary of Shs5M.

Tanzanian Giants Young Africans and Kenyan Giants Gor Mahia are both interested in his signature.

Shaban was the Uganda Premier league top scorer last season with 17 goals and is among the nominees for player of the season.

He came to the limelight in 2016 when he helped Onduparaka FC attain topflight division promotion as well as reaching the final of Uganda Cup in the same year but lost to Vipers SC.

He then left Onduparaka for KCCA FC and scored 13 league goals in his first season at Lugogo.

In 2018, Shaban joined Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca in a deal worth $130,000.

He only spent one year in Morocco and in 2019 he joined six time Uganda Premier league champions Vipers SC on a two year deal before he rejoined Onduparaka.
