KCCA FC have officially confirmed the departure of winger Steven Sserwadda who will be joining New York Red Bulls in the Major League Soccer.
Sserwadda is currently with the national U23 team the Kobs in the CECAFA tournament in Ethiopia.
“We hereby confirm that we have finalised an agreement for the transfer of Steven Sserwadda to New York Red Bulls on an undisclosed permanent transfer.”
Says a statement from the club
The diminutive winger leaves KCCA after a period of six years. He is one of the many successful players who have rolled off the KCCA academy conveyor belt.
Sserwadda, who caught the eye of many scouts at the AFCON U20 tournament, joins the MLS club on a two year contract.
He starred at the AFCON U20 tournament held in Mauritania and scored two goals in the process as Uganda Hippos finished runners up behind eventual winners Ghana.
Sserwadda has won a Cecafa Clubs Cup, and one Uganda Premier League, two Super Cups as well as a Super 8 cup in KCCA colours.
He will be welcomed by former Uganda Cranes captain Ibrahim Sekagya who is a part coaching team at New York Red Bulls.
Mustafa Kizza (CF Montreal) and Edward Kizza (New England Revolution) are the other Ugandan players currently playing in the Major League Soccer.
