Salone winger released by Tranmere Rovers

Sierra Leone international, Abdulai Bell-Baggie, has been released by League Two side Tranmere Rovers after the club confirmed that the winger’s contract has been cancelled by mutual consent.

The former Port Vale and Reading star made 65 appearances for Rovers since joining them in 2012, but later fell out of favour under new boss Micky Adams.

Since Adams took over from Ronnie Moore, the 22-year-old had a limited run-out with the club and his last match for Rovers came in the FA Cup third round against Swansea in early November.

Boss Adams told the club’s official website that the club thanked the Sierra Leonean winger for his service since joining them in 2012. “We wish Abs all the best and thank him for his time at the club,” he said.

Bell-Baggie joined Rovers in July 2012 on trial under manager Ronnie Moore, who was also manager during the player’s time at Rotherham. His impressive display on trials led him to secure a one-year contract and went on to secure a regular spot in the squad.

In March 2013, the player signed a new contract to keep him at Tranmere until 2015. He was placed on the transfer list in January 2015 by new manager Adams who had previously coached him at Port Vale.
