Sierra Leone: Sesay Fullah Heading to Alta IF

Sierra Leone international midfielder, Sulaiman Sesay Fullah is heading to Norway to join Alta IF in the Norwegian Adeccoligaen (first division league).

The former Inter Milan player is on trials with the Norwegian side and if successful could possibly pen down a lucrative contract. "I think winger Sulaiman Sesay Fullah from Sierra Leone is looking forward to playing in Alta IF," said agent Remi Wulff who together with local agent Benjamin Gordon are responsible for contact between club and player.

"In 2008 he was top scorer on the youth team of Inter as they won the Italian championship. He is a quick winger who is good with both feet. He is unpredictable in one-on-one situations and he can also play in an attacking midfield role, added Wulff.

And according to Gordon, he believes the winger can be a success with the Norwegian side. He said: "I have no doubt in him; his experience is an added advantage to succeed in Norway."

Alta IF coach Rune Berger has admitted he is taking a closer look at the 21-year-old Sierra Leonean, saying: "It will be interesting to see if he is of the type we are looking for. The reports about him are certainly good."

Fullah, who traveled from Sierra Leone to Italy at age 15 in 2006, was in the youth department of the Italian club Inter Milan. From there, he moved to FC Parma and last played in Belgium for FC Brussels.

In 2009, he played a private game for the A team of Inter and he lined-up along with players like Hernan Crespo, Luis Figo and Patrick Vieira.

He was invited to the Sierra Leone A-team in 2010 and also played for the Olympic team (U23).
