Gor Mahia Ugandan midfielder, Khalid Aucho, has left for trials at Scottish club Aberdeen with hope of securing a transfer to Europe.

The Cranes star departed for Scotland Thursday night, where he is due to undergo a two-week trials at top-flight side Aberdeen.

Aucho, a former Tusker player, had his travel plans confirmed after being granted a six-month visa to United Kingdom by the British High Commission in Nairobi on Tuesday.

The trials schedule, according to the player’s Kenyan-based manager George Bwana, include training with “The Don’s” first team during that period, plus featuring in a number of friendly matches to allow the club’s technical team assess his ability.

“I can hardly sleep because of the excitement. I want to go there and show them what I can do,” the player told Daily Monitor newspaper in Nairobi on Wednesday.

Aucho, in his mid 20s, won the Kenya Premier League title last season and was voted the second best midfielder in the competition.

He scored the winner for Uganda in the 2-1 away victory over Botswana to keep the Cranes in contention for a berth at next year’s Africa Cup of Nations finals in Gabon.
