Greece Football League side Panserraikos were linked to Uganda international young striker Herman Wasswa, but the deal has been left ignored.
The former Masaka LC and SC Villa striker was a free agent after he decided to ignore the new deal his club Kampala CCA offered him. He wanted a biggest quest, so he was particularly looking out for a fresh challenge. The player’s agent Geoffrey Kayemba confirmed that other clubs were keen on landing the forward this summer, due to his combination of qualities.
There were reports linking Jinja based Uganda Premier League club Bul to the player. Kawowo Sports reported that the agent of the player confirmed that Bul reached out with the hope to land the player, but reported that Wasswa was yet to sign a deal.
“The truth is, Bul just like many other clubs are interested in signing Herman [Wasswa]. But that just that nothing has happened,” Kayemba said. Also, Kayemba confirmed reports linking Wasswa to a move to Greece to play for Panserraikos: “There is also interest from some Lebanese club, and other Ugandan sides but a decision on his next destination will be known soon,” trying not to be too specific.
Wasswa has a lot of admirers as he is known to be a fox in the box, getting past defenders skilfully. In the 2012/13 season, he sent 20 goals to the back of the net for his club. he has won three league medals, aside playing in two Ugandan Cup finals. He was awarded the golden boot in the Ugandan Cup in 2014. Panserraikos finished 11th in the last campaign, losing most of their last games; 2-1 to Acharnaikos, 2-0 to Lamia, and 1-0 to Larissa. This was interrupted with two wins against Panegialios and Ergotellis, then a whopping 5-0 loss to Apollon Smirnis. They wanted a past and talented striker that would contribute goals in the new campaign, but the deal would not be happening based on latest reports.
