GOAL POACHER … ‘Adriano’ Kamara in action for his Swedish club

FC Kallon striker, Alhaji ‘Adriano’ Kamara, on Tuesday signed a three-year contract with Swedish Superettan side, IFK Norrköping for an undisclosed fee. The 19-year-old, who has been on loan to three Swedish clubs in recent years, has finally put pen to paper on a permanent deal with the Scandinavian outfit.

Kamara moved to Sweden from FC Kallon on loan to Djurgården in 2012 and also last season he remained in Sweden on loan, first with IK Frej and then Varnamo in Superettan where he did well by scoring 10 goals in 13 games for Värnamo.

His performance with Värnamo attracted the scouting eyes of officials of IFK Norrköping who decided to tie the striker down on a three-year deal following an agreement with FC Kallon.

Norrköping coach Janne Andersson said he is impressed with the striker’s strength and character and hoped he will contribute greatly towards the team’s success in the forthcoming season.

“He is an extremely exciting player. He’s strong, athletic, slug and mature in the penalty area. Those characteristics led us to choose him. For me he is a great talent who has taken great strides on the road. The other forwards in the team will struggle to keep him out of the starting eleven,” Andersson said during a press conference during the player’s unveiling ceremony.
