After a while on the sidelines, Uganda Cranes left back Godfrey Walusimbi has finally found a club.

Walusimbi who last played club football last year is understood to have secured a move to Albanian side KF Vllaznia.

He has a signed a one-year employment contract and will feature for Vllaznia in the 2019/20 season.

His move was confirmed by the Albanian side via their official website.

“As promised by members of the technical staff, KF Vllaznia has made it a reality to hire another player.., read part of the statement on the club website.

“It is left-back defender Walusimbi Godfrey. The player has signed a one-year contract and is expected to arrive in Shkodra within this week, as soon as he is granted an entry visa to Albania.”

Jaja Walu like he is commonly know in Uganda, last played for South African giants Kaizer Chiefs in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) before terminating his contract after refusal to go out on loan.

He was the Cranes first-choice left back at the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 in Egypt, featuring in all four games including the round of 16 loss to Senegal.

Walusimbi started out at SC Villa for whom he featured from 2006 to 2010.

He then moved to Vipers SC (formerly Bunamwaya FC) where he played three seasons from 2010 to 2013.

Walusimbi then secured a big money move to DR Congo’s CS Don Bosco. At Don Bosco, he barely lasted a year and after negotiations, his contract was terminated.

Walusimbi then returned to Uganda and re-joined SC Villa on a short-term deal, featuring for them in the first half of the 2013/14 season.

After just months at Villa, Walusimbi moved to Gor Mahia where he played from 2014 to 2018, winning three Kenya Premier League titles.

Upon expiration of his deal, he then secured a lucrative deal and signed a three-year deal with Kaizer Chiefs where he lasted just under six months.

Walusimbi is a full Uganda Cranes international having played 105 matches and scoring three goals.
