The Gambian football player Saibou Maudo Keita has been sent on loan to Norwegian third-tier club Egersunds IK by Polish Ekstraklasa side Arka Gdynia. The 19-year-old, who left the reserve side of Norwegian top-tier club Strømsgodset IF earlier this year, impressed Gdynia while on trial before signing on the dotted lines.
The Polish top-tier club has now sent the striker to Egersunds where he will don the number 9 jersey. Saibou, a left-footed 5ft 11in forward, is a player with good dribbling qualities, with an eye for goal and taking on his markers. Despite owning a Norwegian passport as does his elder brother, Saibou is eligible to represent The Gambia at both junior and senior levels.
His elder brother Gambian forward Muhamed Keita has signed on loan from Polish top side Lech Poznań to Norwegian Tippeligaen club Vålerenga, The 26-year-old, who was close to joining clubs in Azerbaijan and in Major League Soccer, has had a fall out with his parent club, Lech Poznań, and has thus decided to temporally end his nightmarish spell in Poland where he suffered racism and continually grew homesick.
