24-year-old Gambian midfielder Sheriff Sinyan who currently plays for Molde FK is a priority signing to Czech top professional league football club Slavia Prague. The Czech capital team is very keen on getting the skillful Gambian international who can also play in central defense.
“We’ve spotted him for over three months, we’re 100% convinced about our choice to get him. He’s been a priority for us all the summer,” said Slavia coach Jindřich Trpišovský.
Sinyan has played 28 competitive games for Molde, after leaving Lilleström last summer. The tall central defender (188cm) has played five times for his home country, The Gambia, but he also has a Norwegian passport by virtue of his birth in Oslo.
He was highly regarded for his performances in the Europa League, in which Molde reached the round of 16, before falling to Granada. Last season, Sinyan made his debut against Arsenal, which the Norwegian side faced in the group stage.
“For me, he is at the level of Alex Bah, a very interesting player with great potential. He perfectly fits our style,” said coach Trpišovský.
“He wants so much to come to us, we are constantly in contact with his agent, everything is done for him to come to Slavia. Sheriff has already told Molde’s management that he would like to be released. We tentatively agreed on the terms, but unfortunately, no agreement has yet been reached between the two clubs. Molde is not very supportive of the transfer…,” Slavia’s manager told the media in Prague.
“But we need a stopper, and we chose him,” he added.
