Bagoole joined Busoga United in September 2018 from Bukavu Dawa and has now left the Mighty Arena for greener pastures.
The development has been confirmed by the club’s Chief Executive Officer David Ndyabahika in a statement dated 14th August, 2020.
“Bagoole David is synonymous with this club, as a player and a son of the land, and that will never change. He is quiet simply a Busoga United FC great, having helped transform the identity and history of the club.”
“A decision like this cannot be taken lightly, which is why this has been discussed together at length over the past few weeks. It is even harder given our close friendship,” the statement read.
Last season, Bagoole scored two goals with five assists, helping the club finish 5th on the 16 team log.
He is said to have finalized talks with UPL Champions Vipers Sports Club and is expected to sign a three-year contract at Kitende.
Previously, Uganda Revenue Authority (URA FC) had expressed interest in his services with other clubs from DR Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, amd Tanzania also keeping a close eye on the midfielder.
