Hamburg have signed Gambian refugee Bakary Jatta on a three-year contract.

Jatta turned 18 a week ago, which allowed him to sign a professional deal.

He already had been training with the first team.

Jatta fled his homeland in 2015 and arrived in northern Germany via Italy.

He joined a football academy in Bremen and convinced Hamburg’s staff to put trial him.

He can play in several attacking positions.

Jatta says he had never played in a club before.
