Sierra Leone and former FC Kallon striker, Ibrahim "Ike" Fofanah has joined Swedish division 3 side Hogsby IK.
The 23-year-old who has been out of football action for one and a half season will pull on the colors of the fifth-tier Swedish league side and Hogsby IK sports Director Fredrik Hultman believes he is physically fit for the upcoming season.
“He has only trained a couple of times with us and it will take time. But he is physically fit and we will be very patient with him. We will not put a burden on him but we will do everything to get him in fine form before the season begins.”
The former Kamboi Eagles forward who made his Sierra Leone national team, Leone Stars debut in 2012 was signed by Swedish club Djurgården later that year despite suffering a broken leg injury while playing for FC Kallon in the country’s local league.
Djurgården did his rehabilitation and later shipped him out on loan to Arameiska-Syrianska IF where he scored five goals in 14 matches. In October of 2013 Djurgården announced that they would not be extending his contract which saw him join Norwegian club HamKam in 2014.
Fofanah last played for Swedish Division 2 side Syrianska IF Kerburan during the 2015 season and has been out of football since then.
