Goalkeeper Matovu Hassan has joined Soltilo Bright Stars FC a day after announcing his departure from KCCA FC.
Swift Sports understands that Matovu is expected to finalize his transfer early next week.
The youthful goalkeeper is a graduate of KCCA FC soccer academy having featured for the club in the FUFA Juniors League.
He was promoted to the senior team in 2019 but couldn’t dislodge Charles Lukwago from the club’s first choice slot.
He spent two seasons on loan at Proline between 2018-20 and won the 2019 Stanbic Uganda Cup after saving a decisive penalty in a shoot out against Bright Stars at Masaka.
He helped Proline gain topflight promotion and featured in six preliminary games for Proline FC in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Last season, Matovu played one game for KCCA which was a 6-2 win over Kitara FC in Masindi.
His last assignment was during the CECAFA Kagame Cup last month as KCCA lost 2-0 to Azam FC in the Group B opening game.
Bright Stars have so far signed Meddie Kyeyune who returned to the club after one season, Japanese midfielder Kazuto Kushida and former Kigezi HomeBoyz midfielder Fiat Cleophas.
They have also promoted youngster Shamuran Kamya (goalkeeper) and Issa Bugembe.
