February 1, 2020

Uganda Cranes striker Patrick Henry Kaddu has joined Egyptian side Ismaily Sports Club on loan until the end of the season from Renaissance Sportive Berkane of Morocco with an an option of purchasing him on a permanent deal.

“Ismaily strengthens its offensive line with the acquisition of Ugandan international Patrick Kaddu from Moroccan top division side RS Berkane,” Ismaily posted on their official twitter handle (@Ismailyofficial).

Kaddu joined Berkane in July 2019 on a four-year contract after enjoying a successful AFCON tournament in Egypt as the Uganda Cranes reached the knock out rounds of the tournament.

He also scored 14 league goals for KCCA as they clinched the 2018/2019 StarTimes Uganda Premier League trophy.

He leaves the club after just seven months failing to nail down a regular spot, while also registering no goals at Berkane.


He played in just seven games at Berkane, mastering just 513 minutes, while he completed the full 90 minutes just twice. Kaddu has also not played a game since Christmas day.

Kaddu was subject to outrage from the club fans who demanded more from him as his goal-scoring history before he joined the club suggested.

Ismaily currently lies seventh on the Egyptian Premier League log with 21 points after 15 league games.
