Saloum joins IF Gnistan

Gambia winger Saloum Faal has left Finnish side FC Kiffen to join their Kakkonen rivals IF Gnistan until the end of the season in September.

The former Gambia Ports Authority forward joins the promotion-chasing side who were relegated from the Finnish second-tier last season.

The 23-year-old creative player with a lot of pace, who has an excellent left-foot, scored on his debut at the weekend when Gnistan were held to a 1-1 home draw by JIPPO.

“I am pleased with the agreement. I’m looking forward to playing with my new teammates and I will try to give it all to this club. I think I’m bringing strength and energy to the team,” he said on the club’s official website.

Gnistan lie second on the Finnish third-tier with 28 points after 15 outings.
