Egyptian Premier League side Misr El-Makkasa Sporting Club have completed the signing of Uganda International midfielder Khalid Aucho on a two-year deal.
Aucho started all the four games of the Uganda Cranes team that reached the round of 16 stage of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 26-year old defensive midfielder also featured for the Cranes in the 2017 Afcon and is an established member in the side with forty-seven appearances for the senior team.
His impressive performances for Uganda in Egypt has earned him a move to Misr El-Makkasa, who finished sixth in the Egyptian Premier League last season.
Aucho becomes the club’s second major summer signing and is set to earn $600,000 (approximately 2.2Bn Ugx) over the two years.
Khalid Aucho joins the Egyptian club from Indian side Churchill Brothers after joining them in July 2018 from fellow compatriots East Bengal.
Aucho has also featured played for Tanzania’s Simba SC, Kenyan sides Tusker FC and Gor Mahia, Baroka FC of South Africa, and Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade and OFK Beograd.
Misr El-Makkasa will now have to sell one of their current foreign players in order to register Aucho for the upcoming season.
