Gambian goalkeeper Sam Jammeh has joined Swedish club IFK Eskilstuna on a free transfer. The 28-year-old Gambian international joined the Division 2 Södra Svealand side on a one-year contract with an option to extend.

The 1.86m keeper has previously played for FC Viikingit in Findland, Gauthiod and Saffle FF in Sweden before becoming a free agent earlier this year.

Sam debuted (made his first appearance) for IFK Eskilstuna on Sunday in the Swedish Division Two league game opener at home to Trosa Vagnhärad SK in a 1-1 draw. The Gambian goalie had a stern performance as his saves were vital for his team to share the spoils.
