In Summary
  • Reports indicate that the two clubs, (Kampala City Council Authority and Paradou) agreed on a fee of about Sh20.1 million ($200,000) and 20% on a forward sale for the forward who is regarded by many as the brightest prospect in the region.

Ugandan prodigy Allan Okello was on Tuesday unveiled at Algerian club Paradou after signing a four-year contract.

Reports indicate that the two clubs, (Kampala City Council Authority and Paradou) agreed on a fee of about Sh20.1 million ($200,000) and 20% on a forward sale for the forward who is regarded by many as the brightest prospect in the region.

The amount is however Sh60.3 million less than the club's valuation made when the forward went for trials at Swiss club FC Zurich mid last year.

Club CEO Anisha Muhoozi declined to delve into the financials of the deal last week but said that should all go successfully, “all parties are happy” with what is on the table when asked.

It is believed the club had earlier turned down more lucrative deals but were then forced to sell the player whose contract had 12 months left, after failing to agree on new terms.
