For the second time in his career, Uganda Cranes defender Joseph Owino has sealed a move to Tanzania where he penned a two year deal with former club Simba SC.

We had earlier reported that a deal for the newly appointed URA FC skipper was in the pipeline for a return to Simba after his impressive performance when the two teams met in a pre-season friendly game that ended 2-1 in favour of the Ugandan side.

The former SC Villa centre back played for the club between 2009 and 2011 before injury affected his form thus returning to URA FC early this year after a loan stint with Vodacom Premiership big spenders Azam FC in 2011.

The financial details of the move were not revealed though the tax collectors are believed to have earned a fee since the player still had four months left on his contract.

Owino joins compatriots Abel Dhaira at the club but his signing denies Sam Ssenkoomi and former KCC FC defender Asuman Buyinza deals at the club.

It’s also reported that Cranes midfielder Musa Mudde has been let go by the club and is close to re-joining Kenyan side Sofapaka.
