Athletics is one of the most popular sports in the world, and equally, the most watched live event in The Gambia. Looking at its nature, it requires months of preparations just to prove oneself in a single day.
Merseyside club Everton have completed the signing of Gambian starlet Imam Jagne from Swedish side BK Häcken on a three-year deal.
Jagne, 16, joins the “Toffees” for a reported fee of £1.3 Million and will start his career with the Under 18 and 23 squads.
The budding defensive midfielder was the main star in the BK Hacken youth team and had two years left on his contract before Everton swooped for him.
Previously, he was scouted by Everton’s EPL rivals Manchester United after excelling in the 2019 Gothia Cup but the move to Old Trafford could not go through.
The talented teenager is currently part of the Swedish national Under 17 team but still eligible to switch allegiance to The Gambia.
English Fourth tier side, Newport County has signed Bristol City forward Saikou Janneh on a season-long loan.
Musa Juwara arrived in Italy in 2016 on a boat as an unaccompanied minor, and since then, a new family and football have changed his life.
