The Montreal Impact signed defender Mustafa Kizza of Uganda on Monday.
The deal is for two years plus three option years, effective Aug. 12.
“We are really happy to acquire one of the best young players from Uganda,” Montreal sporting director Olivier Renard said in a news release. “Mustafa Kizza is a modern attacking left-back with great crossing abilities and huge potential. He is good on free-kicks and his height will also help on set pieces.”
Kizza, 20, will remain with KCCA FC in the Uganda Premier League until December, on loan from the Impact, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Kizza has tallied five goals and 12 assists in 19 games at KCCA FC during the 2019-20 season.
He has also scored four goals in 10 career appearances with the Uganda national team.
