Dundee Utd, Leyton Orient tracking Sierra Leone starlet


By Sahr Morris Jnr

Glasgow-born of Sierra Leonean descent,Azeem Abdulai, is currently linked with a move to trio British clubs, Leyton Orient, Newport County and Scottish based side, Dundee United.

According to WalesOnline, the trio clubs are all monitoring Azeem Abdulai’s progress this month and want to secure a move for the versatile defensive midfielder, who is said to have been a key member of the Swans’ U-21 setup.

Born in Glasgow by a Sierra Leonean father, the youngster made his first team bow in the Carabao Cup against Oxford United in August, having featured in multiple Championship squads in the second-half of last season.

The 20-year-old – who recently signed a new contract to remain with Swansea until at least the summer of 2025 – move out on loan this month in a bid to get regular game time at senior level.

And it’s understood League Two pair Newport and Leyton Orient have both cast their eye over Abdulai while Scottish Championship side Dundee have also shown an interest in securing his services.

Abdulai is yet to play international football at any level, although he is eligible to feature for Sierra Leone through his father or for Scotland where he was born.

Speaking in November about his long-term aims, Abdulai said: “The next big push will be for next season, to break into that team. Whatever happens between now and then, I’m happy to be a Swansea City player for the foreseeable future.”
