Kebba Ceesay Returns to Djurgarden




Gambian international Kebba Ceesay has returned to Djurgarden after four years in Poland, his Polish side Lech Poznan confirmed yesterday.

The defender, 28, who joined the Polish champions from Djurgarden in 2012, was rumoured to be close to a return to the Tele2 Arena for some time and he further fueled those speculations last week when he told Swedish publication FotbollDirekt that he was keen on a new challenge.

During his four years in Poland, Kebba Ceesay made 69 appearances, scoring two goals but his stay there has been disrupted by two career threatening injuries.

Prior to that, Ceesay represented Djurgarden between 2007 and 2012, where he played in 102 top flight matches. He joined Djurgarden from IK Brage.

Kebba’s arrival could signal the end of another Gambian’s time at the Stockholm based club. Omar Colley, who has been the team’s most consistent player in the last one and half year is been linked with a move away from Djurgarden since January with Hertha Berlin and Espanyol touted as possible destinations.

Last week it was reported that Djurgarden turned down a one million euro offer from two Bundesliga clubs, holding out on a fee of two million euros.
