KickOff.com can confirm that Ugandan midfielder Khalid Aucho has signed for Serbian giants Red Star Belgrade after parting ways with Baroka FC.
Aucho joined Bakgaga at the beginning of the season but struggled to fit in at the club, leading to his departure - along with countrymen Geofrey Massa - upon the Cranes’ return from the African Nations Cup finals in Gabon this year.
Having picked up that Aucho’s ITC was issued by SAFA, KickOff.com can now confirm that a deal has since been done with Red Star, who are currently top of the Serbian Super Liga.
“Aucho has signed for Red Star Belgrade and is currently waiting for the issuing of his visa before he joins the team,” says his representative Ivica Stankovic.
Red Star are the most successful club from Serbia and the only team from Eastern Europe to win the UEFA Champions League, which they lifted while it was still known as the European Cup in 1991.
