Saikou Janneh signs for United

30 June 2022

Cambridge United are delighted to announce the signing of Saikou Janneh from Bristol City…

The 22-year-old attacker links up with Mark Bonner's men, signing a two-year deal.

Having started his career at Bath City, Janneh soon caught the eye of neighbours Bristol City whilst playing for Clevedon Town and joined the Robins Academy in 2018.

Whilst at Bristol City, Janneh has made six senior appearances and featured for Torquay United, Newport County and Shrewsbury Town on-loan.

“I am very glad to be here," Janneh said. "I feel like I am wanted. This is the best opportunity for me and I am happy to make a fresh start. I am ready and can't wait."

Mark Bonner said, “Saikou has shown flashes of quality in recent seasons that have made us aware of him for some time.

“He has lots of potential which we are looking forward to maximise and we look forward to helping him develop within our squad.

“Saikou adds good competition across the attacking line. He is comfortable both wide and centrally and is an excellent athlete.”

Janneh becomes the U’s second summer signing and will wear the number 17 shirt.
