Vipers SC in advanced stages to sign former URA and Yanga striker


Vipers Sports Club are likely to beat URA FC to the signature of Cranes striker Hamis Diego Kiiza.

Swift Sports Uganda understands that the former Uganda Premier League top scorer is in advanced talks with the Venoms following negotiations that commenced last week.

For the past fortnight, Kiiza has been on the transfer radar for URA FC as a prime solution for their goal scoring woes but didn’t strike the ultimate agreement since then.

Kiiza is a free agent following the end of his brief stint with Ethiopian Premier League side Fesil Kenema.

The 2011-12 golden boot winner is expected to add up to the Vipers’ elbow-to-elbow attacking options that have blown hot and cold this season.

Diego Kiiza has in the past featured for Nalubaale FC, URA FC, Tanzania’s Yanga Africans and Simba SC, Free State Stars in South Africa and Al Hilal El Obeid of Sudan.

He has been an active member of the national senior team The Cranes since 2011 making 26 appearances and netting 11 times.
