KCCA may be poised to lose midfielder Tom Masiko after talks over a new contract stalled.

Masiko’s contract with the reigning Uganda Premier League champions comes to end in mid-July and talks to ensure his stay at Lugogo have been ongoing since the start of this month.

The on form midfielder has had torrid time at the club following a long injury lay off but seems to have rediscovered his A game towards the end of the domestic season and also has put up energizing performances on the continent as well.

Why talks have stalled

Kawowo Sports has reliably learnt the two camps have failed to reach an agreement on key issues concerning sign on fees and salary.

The champions then enraged the Masiko camp by suggesting there was no hurry to open negotiations and that they would wait to assess him towards end of season.

Massive exodus at Lugogo?

Although KCCA are arguably the most stable side in the country in terms of management, they have a number of players whose contracts are running out. Besides Masiko, players who are yet to renew their contracts include Geoffrey Sserunkuma, Vincent Kayizzi,  Sulaimon Akinyemi, Isaac Kirabira, Ivan Ntege and Robert Ssentongo.

For some, negotiations are ongoing just like the Masiko case whilst others haven’t received any communication from the manager.

According to reliable sources, the club wants everything concerning spending on players sorted before end of June for proper budgeting.
