KAMPALA – Midfielder Tom Masiko has completed a permanent move from Vipers SC to Wakiso Giants FC.
This comes after Masiko spent the entire 2019/20 season on loan at the Purple Sharks where he impressed.
It is understood that the former KCCA FC player has put pen to paper on a thre year deal that runs until July 2023.
The confirmation of the move came on Tuesday morning, with Wakiso Giants stamping it.
