KCCA may have to spend not less than Ugx 100 million if they are to have Muhammad Shaban as their player.

The reigning league champions who have already spent Ugx 50 million on the striker as sign on fees are yet to reach an agreement with Onduparaka where he still has running contract.

Shaban was unveiled by the Lugogo based side three weeks ago basing on a ruling from the FUFA Players’ status committee that gave leeway for him to join a club of his choice subject to agreement with Onduparaka which KCCA hasn’t done yet.

KCCA made an offer of Ugx. 20 million which the Caterpillars duly rejected and it’s now understood they want not less than Ugx. 50 million for their former captain.

“KCCA disrespected us and we are ready to follow the matter to its logical conclusion,” club CEO Anthony Affeti is quoted in the Daily Monitor. “The player might have got his Shs50m sign-on fee but we can’t allow him to move at Shs20m (which KCCA reportedly offered),” he added.

If we can’t get over Shs50m from our best player who even featured at Afcon, then when will we get that chance?”

The striker has trained at KCCA since then and also featured in the club’s practice matches something Affeti has described as Onduparaka being lenient.

 We have been lenient with KCCA and let the player train and play friendly matches for them but they are yet to seek a formal settlement with us.

KCCA visit Bul on Saturday and if no agreement is reached, Shaban may sit out the game like it happened against URA three weeks ago.
