Barely a year into his three-year contract with Belgian giants Standard Liege, Uganda Cranes star Farouk Miya has been sold off to another Belgian club, Royal Excel Mouscron.
Miya completed his transfer to the club today and has been revealed to the fans at a press conference.
Royal Excel Mouscron is a Belgian football club located in the town of Mouscron, in the western province of Hainaut. The club was formed as Royal Mouscron-Péruwelz in the spring of 2010 as a result of the merging of bankrupt club R.E. Mouscron and R.R.C. Peruwelz and was renamed Royal Excel Mouscron in the summer of 2016. The team plays in the Belgian First Division A after it won the Belgian Second Division promotion play-offs in the 2013–14 season.
Miya joined Standard Liege from Uganda Premier League Club, Vipers FC last year on a three-year deal and was scheduled to stay until June 2019. He lifted his first trophy with Standard Liege in March last year after his team edged Club Brugge 2-1 in the Belgium Cup final.
He was the lone goal scorer for the Cranes at the AFCON, currently ongoing in Gabon.
At the tournament Uganda was knocked out in the group stages last week.
