The long-standing dispute between Cranes midfielder Hassan Wasswa Mawanda and his former Turkish club, Kayseri Erciyesspor, is all but over after Fifa ordered for the provisional registration of the player with his new paymasters KCC FC.
A few weeks ago, Wasswa reportedly penned down a six-month loan deal with KCC worth Shs 15m. Chuck Blazer, the sole judge of the Fifa's players' status committee, made the temporary order to allow Wasswa feature in the domestic football league.
This followed the deliberate refusal by Erciyesspor to issue Wasswa with an international transfer certificate (ITC) despite the expiry of his contract.
Moses Magogo, the Fifa Transfer Matching System (TMS) agent for Uganda, is relieved the standoff is over. "It's been long overdue," he says. "However, the order may be challenged by his former club but until then, Fufa is free to register the player for KCC FC."
