Newcastle are reported to be interested in Sierra Leone striker Teteh Bangura.
Teteh Bangura – the new Didier Drogba
The 21-year-old has been called the new Didier Drogba and this is not the first time Newcastle have been linked with the 6′ tall midfielder who can also play up front, and has a knack for scoring goals
Teteh started his career in 2006 in Sierra Leone playing for Kallon and in 30 appearances for the club he scored 14 goals.
He moved to the USA in 2009 and played for the Cleveland City Stars and on loan at the Cascade Surge in the USL Premier Development League in Oregon, before moving back to Kallon last year.
After a few more games for Kallon last year he then joined Swedish club Köping before moving to AIK, also in Sweden, and that’s whom he joined permanently only this year.
So it seems up to this point the player has only played in a lower class of football, and it must be difficult to judge how he would do at the very top level at Newcastle.
He has one cap for Sierra Leone this year.
It’s difficult to judge how good this player could become, but if he is called the new Didier Drogba, presumably he looks good and certainly seems to be able to score goals.
From what we can tell he’s played 63 club games and scored 41 goals so far in his short career.
And not to spread too many rumors, but we’ve had a couple of notes this morning saying the old Didier Drogba was sighted in the Newcastle club shop yesterday with Derek LLambias – but that would be a huge surprise if true.
These rumors are probably coming from Alan Pardew and him shaking hands and all that stuff at Stamford Bridge.
What do you think about Teteh?
