The club won the race to secure the attacker’s services ahead of dozen other suitors to bolster its set up ahead of resumption of the league –currently on a break.

18-year-old Erik made the grades after impressing with his silky skills and goals that helped Sprint-Jeløy, gain promotion to the third division.

Hopes are high on the powerful forward and while he may not quickly get his slice of the cake in the first team next season, he’s expected to rise rapidly in the not-too distant future.

Erik is kind of attacker that wreak havoc on teams and sends chills down spines of defenders, depending massively on his strong built and skill and pace.

The forward has already expressed interest in playing Gambia U-20s when the qualifiers begin.
