Swedish club Angelholm Monday confirmed the acquisition of the 22-year-old Gambian on an undisclosed fee.
Jawneh a former Gambia U-20 midfielder-cum defender joins the Scandinavian club from local GFF side Bakau United.
The recent deal makes him the second Gambian under Angeholm’s finance books after Modou Lamin Sanyang who switched on loan from Real de Banjul.
And speaking after completion of the transfer, Bakau United Boss Seedy Kinteh expressed delight over the move.
The switch –one of many – was quickly sorted in the player’s, according to erstwhile Gambia Football Association president.
‘Players interest is our concern. Even a single set of jersey we don’t receive from their clubs (who sign them).Yes of course (we are happy with the deal). Player’s interest is a national interest that’s want thing about Bakau United’ Seedy Kinteh told Foroyaa Sport yesterday morning.
Saihou’s transfer soars the number of Gambian exports in the Swedish second tier to four namely Aziz Corr Nyang, Omar Jawo and Modou Lamin Sanyang.
