Former KCCA defender Musa Ramathan has joined Major league soccer club FC Cincinnati on a seasonal long loan.
The lanky defender will play for the Club’s reserve team.
He has been acquired from Czech Republic side MFK Vyskov with an option to fully buy him at the end of the season.
“I’d like to welcome Musa to Cincinnati,” said Tyrone Marshall, Head Coach of FC Cincinnati 2.
“He is a physical central defender with great potential who we believe can help our group and develop within the FC Cincinnati environment.”
Musa becomes the second Ugandan Player to join the MLS League, after left back Aziz Kayondo who joined Real Salt Lake Salt weeks ago.
Before sealing his new move, Musa had initially signed for Czech football club MFK Vyskov earlier this year in February.
But the club opted to loan him to the MLS side as he continues with his football career development.

He was part of the KCCA team that won the Cecafa Kagame cup back then in 2019 under the stewardship of former coach Mike Mutebi.
At the national teams, he was a key member at the U20 team that were beaten finalist at the U20 AFCON tournament held the past years in Mauritania.
