Tonny Mawejje has completed a move to Albanian side KF Tirana.

The Uganda Cranes midfielder signed a two year deal with arguably the biggest club in the country that will keep him at the club until 2019 with an option to renew.

The financial details of the deal remain scanty but in an interview early this month, Mawejje revealed he was excited about the KF Tirana project despite many offers coming his way.

“There have been many offers coming my way,” said Mawejje. “But after talking to Hector, I opted to join KF Tirana so that I can be part of the big project,” he added.

It’s not about the money but the future of the club looks bright. It’s a big club with a lot of history and has always aimed at better performance in Europe as well.

Mawejje flew to Albania in the wee hours of Saturday and arrived late on the same day.

At KF Tirana, he joins compatriot Yunus Ssentamu and will coached by former Brazilian international and Gor Mahia Coach, Ze Maria.

Despite winning the FA Cup last season, the club was relegated to the second tier and targets not only a return to the top division but Europe as well.

This year, they were denied chance to play in the group stages of UEFA Europa League by Maccabi Tel Aviv.
