KITENDE – Vipers SC have completed the signing of former KCCA striker Tito Okello.

Okello who has had a brief stint in Asia with Benfica De Macau after deserting KCCA in March is believed to have inked a 2 year deal at the Venoms.

He finalized negotiations with the Kitende based side on Friday and will don the Red and Black kit up to the close of the 2019/20 Uganda Premier League season.

Okello returns to the Uganda premier league after forcing a move away from KCCA FC to join Asian side Benfica De Macau in Macau in March this year.

The now dreadlocked striker has previously played for BUL FC, Africa Lyon and Mbeya City in Tanzania.

He joins Vipers after successfully guiding Benfica De Macau to their 5th straight league championship having scored 12 goals in 10 games.

Okello becomes Vipers’ 10th signing in the ongoing transfer window after Brian Majwega, Bashir Sekagya, Joseph Janjali, Ibrahim Kiyemba, Fred Okot, Rahmat Senfuka, Abraham Ndugwa, Dickens Okwir and Livingstone Mulondo

Meanwhile, former Proline striker Daniel Isiagi has also completed a move to Egyptian side Al Nasr Sporting Club after signing a 2 year deal.

Daniel Isiagi was Proline FC top scorer last season

Following 2 weeks of trials, Isiagi put pen to paper on a contract that will see him at the Cairo based club until 2020.

Isiagi scored nine goals last season as Proline FC failed to fend off relegation to the second tier.

He joins a side that was relegated last season from the Egypt Premier League after gathering only 22 points to finish bottom on the table.

The lanky striker had previously featured for the now defunct SC Victoria University and KCCA FC before joining Proline FC.

He now joins his fellow Ugandans in Hassan Wasswa (Tale’ea El Geish), Derrick Nsibambi (Smouha SC) and Isaac Muleme (Haraas El Hadood) who are also plying their trade in Egypt.
