Mustafa Kizza joined Montreal Impact on a two-year deal.

Major League Soccer (MLS) side Montreal Impact have confirmed the signing of Ugandan defender Mustafa Kizza.

The left-back joins the club on a two-year deal from KCCA but will remain at Lugogo on loan until December because of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the clubs will have an option to fly him to US in case situation normalizes.

“We are really happy to acquire one of the best young players from Uganda,” said the Montreal Impact sporting director Olivier Renard on the club website.

“Mustafa Kizza is a modern attacking left-back with great crossing abilities and huge potential. He is good on free-kicks and his height will also help on set pieces.”

Kizza has been at KCCA for the past three years and has grown into one of the best in his position in recent years scoring goals and assisting many.
