Sierra Leone forward, Alhaji Kamara, has signed for the Moldovan top-flight side, FC Sheriff, making him the team fourth new acquisition.

The 5 ft 11-inches striker is excited about the prospect of being able to play again in Europe.

He tweeted: “Back in Europe Alhamdulillah don’t ask me how.”

The former IFK Norrköping striker scored 5 goals in 14 appearances before departing Al-Taawoun.

“Today, in Belek, the parties signed an agreement on cooperation. The collective of FC “Sheriff” is glad to welcome Alhaji Kamara. We wish him many matches without injuries and many trophies won,” the clubs statement reads

Kamara’s national teammate, Khalifa Jabbie, won the Moldovan title and the Moldovan Cup during the 2016 – 2017 seasons before departing the club.

The club has dominated Moldovan top-tier since 2001, winning 14 of 16 possible titles in the Moldovan National Division. Kamara has four capped with Sierra Leone; he began his career with local club FC Kallon, before signing on loan with Swedish first division side Djurgårdens IF in 2012 and eventually signing with IFK Norrköping in 2014.

In February, 2016, it was reported that the Sierra Leonean has a potential cardio issue and because of that, he was stopped from playing in Europe.

But the Swedish Allsvenskan winner was cleared to resume his career after further examinations from US-based doctors; the initial medical test confirmed he was suffering from a congenital heart disease, a deviation of the coronary arteries.
