Ssentamu agreed a two year deal joining FK Tilanna who play in the second division in Albania.

The journeyman finally returns to active playing after spending six months on the sidelines without a club.

The pacey forward had his stay at Finnish side FC Illves short lived playing just for six months and the negotiations to have a better offer hit a snag and Ssentamu decided to return to Kampala where he has been without playing actively.

Ssentamu therefore joins KF Tilanna as a free agent and has been handed shirt number 11 at his new club.

The former Vipers, AS Vita and CS Sfaxien striker is expected to join the team either at the end of this week or at the start of next week waiting only to receive travel Visa.

The 23-year old has not settled since leaving AS Vita being a hobo around clubs.

Ssentamu rose to the limelight during the 2014 Championship of African Nations (CHAN) in South Africa scoring three goals in the tournament.

KF Tilanna got relegated at the end of the 2016/17 season after finishing in 9th position.

They however went ahead to win the Albania Cup and have a chance to play in the UEFA Europa. They will play Israel’s Maccabi Tel Aviv in the preliminary round.

The team is coached by former Gor Mahia coach, Jose Marcelo Ferreira commonly referred to as Ze Maria.
