Uganda Cranes defender Murushid Juuko is set to complete a move to Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca.
According to Swift Sports, Juuko has already agreed a three-year deal with the Moroccan record league champions and will soon be confirmed as their player.
He is also believed to have undergone a medical which he successfully passed on Saturday.
Just like several other Ugandan footballers, Juuko is feeding off his performance at the just concluded AFCON tournament in Egypt.
He featured in three of Uganda’s four games in Egypt, only missing the draw with Zimbabwe due to illness.
Juuko has previously featured for Vipers SC, Entebbe FC, Victoria University and Simba SC of Tanzania.
He became a free agent in July after the expiration of his deal at Simba and has been on the radar of several African clubs.
If he seals the move, Jjuuko will be the third Ugandan to play in the Moroccan Botola League this season after Milton Karisa (Moulodia Club D’Oujda) and Patrick Kaddu who signed a four year deal at RS Berkane.
He has been a mainstay in the Uganda Cranes set-up since making his debut in 2015, winning 35 appearances and scoring one goal.
The other Ugandans who have completed moves to new clubs after AFCON 2019 include Abdu Lumala, Khalid Aucho, Hassan Wasswa, Tadeo Lwanga, Allan Kyambadde, Mike Azira and Farouk Miya.
