Ugandan right back Mustafa Kizza imminent move from KCCA to Switzerland's Lausanne could collapse as the Kampala club holds out for a fat paycheque.
Futaa understands that the Swiss club has been impressed by Kizza and has offered him a contract after agreeing on personal terms. However, KCCA has slapped an exorbitant price tag on the restless defender thus delaying the contract signing.
Kizza is in the final year of his contract at KCCA and could leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Ugandan football news website Kawowo Sports, reports that Lausanne want to tie up Kizza as soon as possible as he has been identified as a key transfer target during the yet to be closed winter transfer window.
“The few days he spent here, he impressed and the club wants to sign him. They want to sign him but his club (KCCA) is pricing him high yet his contract will be up in less than eight months,” a Kawowo Sports quoted the source.
It is understood that the Ugandan club is asking $100,000 to release the defender who earlier in the year saw his move to Moroccan side Hassania Agadir collapse after parties involved failed to agree on a contract. He lso failed to join Czech Republic third division side MFV Vyskov after visa complications.
Lausanne are willing to part with at most $50,000.
In an interesting twist to the transfer saga, KCCA chief executive Anisha Muhoozi claims that Lausanne is yet to table any offer or formally contact them over Kizza.
“As a club, we are yet to receive any official communication from the club with an offer in regards to Kizza,” Muhoozi told Kawowo Sports.
“We are aware that Kizza was in Switzerland and we have had talks mainly with his agency but Lausanne is yet to make an official offer so there is no justification that we are frustrating his move,” she explained.
