Gambia: Dawda Bah Told to Leave

Gambia international Dawda Bah edges closer to quitting the Bundesliga after he had been told to look for new employers by his club Augsburg.

The attacker has six months left of his current contract with the Germans after signing 2 million euro deal from Finnish champions Helsinki, last year.

His acquisition by Augsburg was a big gain for the club as they fought to gain foothold in the top flight from the German second division.

Heralded as a potential success and the first Gambian to put pen to paper with a Bundesliga outfit, Dawda had a task of paying the club trust in him -to revel.

However, the former Hawks ace raked up just eighteen minutes of play time as a career threatening left kneecap injury condemned him to the sideline.

A recurrence sustained last year August did little to help his recuperation. But Augsburg has run short of patience as the man tipped to inject firepower to their survival mission struggles to earn a place in the team.

As a result with January transfer window ajar, Augsburg coach sets himself on trimming his squad and Dawda Bah is one of the players told to look elsewhere, according to Sport365.

Interested clubs have not surfaced for the Gambian and a return to Finland is not on the cards for the 29-year-old.
