“Media is under two years contract with us; any club that wants to buy him will have to do a professional transfer procedure where the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) and the parent club of the player will be involved to make it amicable.”
“At this point, no “Bosman ruling” is involved concerning the player,”Arua Hill SC concluded.
