Bristol City tie down goalkeeper

African trialist has done enough to earn deal with Championship club

Bristol City have agreed a deal with young African goalkeeper Alhaji Sesay, HITC Sport understands.

The 18-year-old has been training with The Robins for a number of months, and he has impressed with a number of fine displays for their youth sides.

Sesay was spotted playing locally in London and has never been attached to a club, but he has quickly emerged as a huge talent.

Sesay and his family have Dutch passports having moved to Holland from Sierra Leone some 15 years ago, which allows him to be in England.

The highly-rated teenager has now agreed a two-year deal with the Championship club, which will see him staying at Ashton Gate until 2018 at least.

Sesay is now set to link-up with Jamie McAllister's Under-23 side but hopes are high within the club that he could be pushing for a place in the first-team squad sooner rather than later.
