Hamis Kiiza Finally Extends Yanga Contract

seek geneva;”>Kiiza who joined Yanga at the beginning of the second half of the 2011/12 premiership season courtesy of Coach Sam Timbe has agreed to sign for the club at a staggering $40, 000 payable in two separate installments.

Kiiza had earlier rejected to sign a contractual extension as he demanded a $50,000 that opened a dispute for almost two months now.

He lowered the fee to $45,000 before boarding a flight to Kampala at the end of the season. It is exactly not known how the two parties came to the agreement but Kiiza is reported to have agreed to feature for Yanga at least for the next two premiership season.

A member of Young Africans’ players’ registration committee Mussa Katabaro, said negotiations with Kiiza with regard to registration have been successful and the player is expected to rejoin the club before next month.

Kiiza joined Yanga from Uganda Revenue Authority and has scored crucial goals for the champs during his two-year playing stint.

“It is very true that we have concluded contract talks with Kiiza and he is expected to join us at the end of the month ahead of the premiership season,’’ said Katabaro.

Kiiza has so far concluded Yanga’s registration of players for the new premiership season and CAF Champions League series.

Earlier Yanga had extended a two-year contract with Rwanda’s midfielder Haruna Niyonzima who is believed to be the best paid and expensive player for the club.

Kiiza raised his price tag soon after Yanga had signed Niyonzima in May. Niyonzima was signed by a huge amount of fee in a bid to avoid archrivals Simba who have been tracking the player with tenacious zeal.

Yanga are now in Lake zone sporting tour playing pre-season friendlies.

Mainland premiership season kicks off mid next month according to the Tanzania Football federation though the league fixture has not been released.

Last season the league kicked off almost a month after an earlier announcement that caused uproar from the premiership teams in connection to their preparation plans.
