Gambian international striker, Ali Sowe has signed a loan deal for Russian Premier League side Rostov with an option of signing a permanent contract.

The 26-year-old striker left Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia after consistently showing blistering form in front of goal since last season which earned him the Foreign Best Player Award.

The loan deal for the Serekunda-born player is estimated to be worth around two million Euros, which when converted to Gambian currency equates D124million dalasi.

Ali Sowe left CSKA Sofia after guiding them to second position in the Bulgarian First Division, while his new Russian side Rostov currently sits fifth position in the Russian Premier League table with 32 points after nineteen matches.
