He will probably replace Taifa Stars wing wizard, Mrisho Ngassa, who turned down an offer to join 18 times Sudan champions. El Merriekh scouts spotted the midfield kingpin during CECAFA Challenge Cup where he captained the Cranes to their 13th trophy.
Wasswa flew to Khartoum with another Cranes player Mike Mutyaba, who returns to the club after a six-month spell with domestic side Vipers. Mutyaba trained with the side to regain fitness following an injury.
“I knew of his trip to Sudan because the same person who consulted us when they were pursuing Mutyaba came back again for Wasswa,” FUFA official Haruna Kyobe said. Wasswa has been a free agent after he ran out of contract at Turkey League One club Kayseri Erciyesspor earlier this year.
