Cranes striker Kiiza linked to Oman club
According to reports by Kawowo Sports, Hamis ‘Diego’ Kiiza is on the verge of joining Oman Professional League side Fanja FC.
The Uganda Cranes striker was released by Tanzanian club Yanga Africans in the just concluded Tanzania Premier League mid-season transfer window last month.
He was replaced by coach Márcio Máximo with Liberian import Kpah Sherman. Despite being linked to the eight-time Oman champions, Kiiza dismissed talk about a proposed move to the Asia.
“It is not true that I am heading to Oman as yet,” Kiiza told Africa Football Shop on Friday, “but I don’t know as yet about my next destination.”
This is the second time the former Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) striker has been linked to a move to the Middle East. He was also given trials by Al Ahed SC in Lebanon two years ago.
Kiiza scored an important consolation goal from the spot as Uganda Cranes lost 2-1 away to Madagascar in their opener of the failed 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier last year.
