Sierra Leone international defender, Alie Sesay, has departed English League Two side, Barnet FC on transfer deadline day.

The 22-year-old versatile defender’s departure was confirmed by the club on their website on Wednesday, February 1st, 2016.

The Barnet Football Club message reads: “Barnet Football Club can confirm we have come to an agreement to cancel Alie Sesay’s contract by mutual consent. Sesay, 22, joined the Bees from Leicester City last January and made 21 appearances in black and amber.

“His last appearance came as a substitute in the Boxing Day win at Cheltenham Town. Everyone at Barnet Football Club would like to thank Alie for his contribution and wish him the very best of luck in future.”
Sesay joined Barnet on an 18-month deal in January, 2016 after going through the Leicester City academy but did not make a single first-team appearance for the Premier League Champions.

The Sierra Leonean international, who can play across the back four and in central midfield has had a loan spell at Colchester and Cambridge United during his days at Leicester City.

He was born in England but is of Sierra Leonean decent and has so far made three appearances for Sierra Leone national team, Leone Stars. He last played for Sierra Leone against Ivory Coast in Abidjan in November, 2014 in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

He was invited for Leone Stars’ last 2017 AFCON qualifying game against Sudan in Freetown but didn’t play and was the first time he stepped his feet on Sierra Leonean soil after 12 years.
