Former Vipers midfielder Olivier Osomba has found a fresh opportunity following his release by the Ugandan champions in the ongoing transfer window.

The Congolese has returned home, joining AS Vita Club, a football powerhouse located in Kinshasa.

This seasoned midfielder was part of the club's squad for the CAF Champions League preliminary round against Angola's Clube Desportivo 1º de Agosto on August 27.

The match ended in a one-all-draw às Clube Desportivo 1º de Agosto won with a 2-1 aggregate score to progress to the next round.

Osomba, a pivotal member of Vipers, played an instrumental role in the team's remarkable double-silverware victory during the preceding season.

His arrival at the club in the previous year was geared toward filling the void that emerged in Vipers' midfield after the departure of Bobosi Byaruhanga.

Notably etched in fans' memories, Osomba's defining moment came as he confidently converted the decisive penalty, propelling Vipers to triumph over TP Mazembe.

This victory secured their entry into the group stages of the 2022/2023 CAF Champions League.

After his departure from Vipers, Osomba's potential next destination had been rumoured to be with FUS Rabat, a prominent team in North Africa hailing from Morocco. However, despite initial discussions, the anticipated deal failed to come to fruition.
