Amadou Barry, a 16-year-old Gambian starlet who was born in 1993, to a Gambian father Momodou Barry, alias Kaw is currently in Banjul, to sort out his contract documents from the Gambia Football Association and his former Division One side Real De Banjul to complete a move in Germany.

Born in Bakoteh Lay-out, Bailo as he is affectionately called started his football career with second division side Ham Ham in 2006, before moving to play for the 2006/07 GFA Division One league champions Real De Banjul in 2007.

Bailo made a surprise switch to the German youth team F S.V. Frankfurt 1899, after a successful two-year stint with Real De Banjul where he made his first debut in a 2-1 defeat to city rivals Hawks last season.

In an exclusive interview with Pointsport on Monday in Point's office, Bailo gave a brief detail regarding his contract he signed two months ago.

'I left the country for a trial through Real De Banjul officials and a German agent with Damstadt, but I opted to move to F.S.V. Frankfurt instead", the versatile midfielder explained.

Bailo whose mother's name is Ruggie Sey Barry added "My purpose of coming to The Gambia is to see how best I can be able to secure documents from Real De Banjul and the GFA that would enable me complete my move and to play for my new German club."

Bailo is the latest Gambian youngster to sign for a German youth side F.S.V. Frankfurt at the U-17 category, which is a feeder team to his compatriot and left back Pa Saikou Kujabi who is making name for himself in F.S.V. Frankfurt's senior side in the German Bundasliga.
