Uganda Cranes midfielder Khalid Aucho Khalid has joined new-promoted Absa Premiership side Baroka on a three year contract.
Khalid flew out country destined for South Africa earlier this week to complete the move.
"Deal done. Thank God my new home is Baroka FC, South Africa. Thanks to all the coaches that have brought me up. Thanks to all the teams I have gone through,” he wrote on his social media page.

Baroka started life in top-tier football with a one-all draw against Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday in their season’s opener.
The side has been busy in the market, having previously made 13 new signings ahead of the new campaign.
Meanwhile, Aucho has been summoned to the Uganda Cranes team to face Kenya (friendly) and Comoros (final AFCON Group D qualifier), and is expected back in Kampala alongside Massa for national duty.
