URA midfielder Shafik Kagimu

Vipers Sports Club is willing to pay URA for the buy-out fee to secure captain Shafik Kuchi Kagimu.

Kagimu, who had a phenomenal 2018-19 season with the tax collectors reportedly ranks aloft the wish list for Vipers.

The intelligent playmaker who scored 8 goals in all competitions for the club was a key pillar for Sam Ssimbwa’s outfit.

He scored seven league goals in 28 matches and one in the Uganda Cup where URA bowed out at the round of 16 to Bright Stars.

Kagimu recorded six assists in a busy season where the tax collectors finished third on the 16 team log.

In reality, Vipers can only secure Kagimu via a round table interface since the attacking midfielder since has more than 12 months on his employment contract.

“True. My client has been approached by Vipers Sports Club but he still has a valid contract at URA FC. But again, we can still sit down and talk business because his contract was designed with a buy-out clause,” Kagimu’s agent disclosed to Airtel Football.

With Police right-back Paul Willa already signed, Vipers would wish to add Kagimu for next season as they eye yet another league honour.

Vipers has also picked interest in Kirinya-Jinja S.S’ David Bagoole, younger brother to former Uganda Cranes midfielder Johnson Bagoole (R.I.P).
