Uganda Cranes forward Derrick Nsibambi has reunited with Egypt Premier League club Smouha Football Club.

According to his agent Geofrey Solo Kayemba, the decision to for the striker to return to Egypt was reached upon by the two parties at the start of the new year.

“My client (Derrick Nsibambi) has returned to Smouha Football Club in Egypt. We reached an agreement with the club because they needed his services and for the good of his career, he has returned to serve diligently”  Kayemba noted.

Nsibambi completed his transfer from KCCA to Smouha on a three year deal with the Alexandria based club in June but had left the club unceremoniously four months later because of unclear circumstances.

“We resolved the issues between the player and management. He is set to start afresh and serve without fear or favour” Kayemba added.
