Gambia: Ali Sowe Pass Chievo Medical

Ali Sowe has passed a medical test with Italian club Chievo and a deal is to be brokered soon.

The player will soon be unveiled officially as a Chievo player after agreeing on contractual terms.

The Gambia U-19 ace, having been given more time to acclimatize with the Italian weather, will not be fast-tracked into the reserve side so soon.

The reason for giving the ex- Serekunda United forward time space is due to an inconsistent reading with his blood pressure due to his new environment.

Ali Sowe confirmed, he has been as a result allowed to skip club training till next week.

Gamtel and Verona Chievo were locked in contract talks for the past month for the signature of the attacker before recently undergoing a checkup.

"The deal has finally been pushed. And Gamtel and the club [Chievo] have agreed on terms for the acquisition of Ali. He will go for a medical, then paper will be sent for Gamtel to sign. He left for Italy days ago" Gamtel gaffer and twice Supercup and FA winner, Tapha Manneh told Foroyaa Sports in an earlier interview.

Ali will be Gambia's first export to sign for a first division club in Italy after Ports Authority's defender Alagie Bun Gaye tried without success in 2009.

Sowe caught eyes of scouts during Gambia U-19 participation in the U-19 tournament in Italy Umbra.

Chievo is an Italian Premier League club based in Chievo, a suburb of 2,800 inhabitants in Verona, Veneto, and owned by Paluani, a cake company and shares the 38,402 seater Marc'Antonio Bentegodi stadium with its cross-town rivals Hellas Verona.
