Gambian duo Mustapha Carayol, Baboucarr Gaye released by their clubs

Monday, June 17, 2019

Gambian winger Mustapha Carayol and goalkeeper Baboucarr Gaye have both been released by their European clubs, Apollon Limassol and Arminia Bielefeld respectively.

According to Gambia Sports, Carayol, who scored two goals in fourteen league appearances for Apollon, leaves the Cypriot club after just one season.

The 30-year-old Scorpions player, who played in England throughout his career, has signed a two-year contract with the Limassol-based club last August, appearing five times during their 2018/19 UEFA Europa League campaign.

 The three-time Cypriot champions have now decided to let go of the former Bristol Rovers, Middlesbrough, Brighton & Hove Albion, Leeds United, Huddersfield Town, Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town player despite a year left on his current deal.

 Elsewhere, in Germany, goalkeeper Baboucarr Gaye was also let go by boyhood club Arminia Bielefeld.

The 21-year-old, who rose through the ranks with the 2. Bundesliga side’s youth teams, got his first Scorpions call-up last year.

He has been let go after his current deal elapsed, failing to make a first-team appearance for Bielefeld in three seasons.
