The end of the previous football season came with the crowing of Express FC as league champions and with it, the transfer window.

In the meantime, several football players have reached the end of their current contracts and are free agents and they can be signed by any club without a transfer fee.

For some, negotiations over renewal with their clubs are ongoing while others are talking to other clubs for possible moves.

This scenario presents a perfect chance for suitors to secure these players at a cheap since all they need is to pay their salaries and a signing on fee.

We take a look at the top 10 who are free and available on the market.

Wasswa is arguably among the top talented versatile players in the country with the ability to play in defence and midfield.

He played the second half of last season at Villa where he signed a short contract that ended at the ended of the season.

Wasswa has been linked with a move to URA who originally wanted him when he left Vipers but negotiations hit a dead end.

The former Masavu FC Captain endured a mixed bag of success at Vipers SC due to several injury woes and inconsistent form.

At times when played, he has shown some promising performances but far from the promising player he was at Masavu.

Shockingly, Obenchan has been one of the longest serving players at KCCA having broken through the youth ranks at the club.

Whenever fit, Obe has been a mainstay in the team but injuries hampered his campaign last season.

He is already out of Lugogo with URA, Express and Wakiso Giants reportedly interested in his signature.

The highly rated custodian fell out with the now relegated Kyetume last season.

Mutakubwa is one of the fast rising goalkeepers who was sought after last window but the club held on to him.

He is now a free agent and reports link him to giants KCCA and Express.

Muwadda Kateregga | DEF| WAKISO GIANTS

The Ugandan international has been the rock upon which the Express FC defence was built last season.

No suitors have been sighted locally and signs point to a renewal of contract at Wankulukuku.

The unsung hero wherever he has played. Kirabira is an anchor-man with top positioning and game intelligence whose availability on the market will alert many suitors.

Muwanga has had a fantastic campaign with the Red Eagles keeping 13 clean sheets enroute to winning the golden glove and helping Express with their first title in over 10 years.

He is linked with moves abroad but negotiations to keep him at Wankulukuku are ongoing as well.

Savio Kabugo | DEF | PROLINE FC

Kabugo is a good defender whose progress has been hampered by consistent injuries.

But he returned with Proline last season and put up great performances that have seen the club earn play-off position in the Fufa Big League.

His contract ran out after end of June and is currently available with giants interested.

The midfield gem is a monster when fit but injuries denied him featuring in several games last season for Wakiso Giants.

He scored over five goals for the club last season and several clubs are waiting to pounce if he doesn’t renew his contract at the club.

Siraje Sentamu | MF | VIPERS SC

Sentamu signed a two year contract with Vipers in 2019 returning to the club for a second stint.

The midfielder was a rock in the middle of the pack as the Venoms won the title in 2019/20 season but a few injuries and the emergency of Bobosi Byaruhanga saw him earn limited playing time last season.

Rahmat Ssenfuka | MF | WAKISO GIANTS

Ssenfuka joined the Purple Sharks from Vipers on a one year deal at the start of last season and despite sitting out a few games at the start, he later became a mainstay in the team.

There are reports linking him with several clubs but Wakiso Giants could be willing to retain him.

Brian Majwega | DEF | URA SC

URA left back Brian Majwega prepares to execute a throw-in

After two seasons with URA, the defender opted not to extend his stay at the club and he was officially let go this week.

The left back cum winger is already linked with a return to his former club, KCCA FC.

Daniel ‘Mzee’ Sserunkuma | FWD | VIPERS SC

The experienced centre forward didn’t feature as much as he needed last season but offered goods whenever he was played.

He won’t be out suitors this transfer window if negotiations over a new deal at Kitende don’t materialise.
