Newly appointed coach of Swedish premier league side, Falkenberg, Henrik Larsson is eyeing a move for Sierra Leone international striker, Mohamed ‘Poborsky’ Bangura who he dubbed as a ‘fantastic’ player.

According to Swedish Sport Bladet, the premier league newcomers are very close to secure a loan for Manchester City striker Godsway Donyoh, who last season played with Djurgarden but new boss Larsson – who drove his first training session with the team last Thursday afternoon – confirmed he wants to reinforce his squad with the Sierra Leone striker.

Larsson told reporters after his first training session that they need to sign strikers ahead of the league. He said: “We need to receive forwards, no doubt. In midfield, we are almost complete. The defensive line, we have many names. I have contacted the heads.”

Sportbladets revealed that the Halland club wants to borrow the Celtics striker who recently spent a season long loan with Elfsborg.

“Henke have contacted the lead in Falkenberg with a desire to retrieve Bangura on loan. One such business is of course impossible for the club normally but ‘Henke’ is committed if he can fix it with their contacts. He is a friend of both Lennon and Mjallby, so they can help to make them so. His contacts are the only chance here.”

Larsson himself admits that Bangura is a player he is very much impressed with. He said: “Nothing is impossible. But before anything is clear, I would not comment on any names. Since I am talking about our players.”

Bangura’s Swedish agent, Patrick Mark, excludes the possibility of Falkenberg loaning striker. He was quoted by Swedish online media, fotbollskanalen.se as saying: “Mohamed is back in Celtic and will try to settle in there. Falkenberg is not an issue for him.”
