Gambian football particularly at the youth category has witnessed a significant improvement in terms of producing a good number of young talented stars plying their trade in the MLS with players like Emmanuel Gomez and Amadou Sanyang at Toronto FC while Sanna Nyassi plays for the Seattle Sounders.
The latest Gambian footballer who could be playing in the MLS as early as next season is Ardy Jagne, whose successful one year stint with Fall Rivers in the American Third Division had earned him a move to Commonwealth confederation in the American Second Division where he is currently serving as a player and Assistant Coach for Roger Williams.
According to the Point, Ardy Jagne, who was born in the Banjul in 1985 will join Sainey Nyassi and Kenny Mansally at Revolution who are interested in securing his services after impressing them during a short trial.
The defender won the player of the year award during his four-year spell with Roger Williams, the club he joined from Fall Rivers in 2005and he also continually been linked with a move to another MLS side DC United, who has since been looking for a central defender of Ardy Jagne’s quality.
Ardy speaking to Point Sports Lamin Drammeh told the Point that he is expected to put pen to paper on a contract with the Boston based outfit when he returns [to the USA] to the club in June.
The lanky central defender who has never denied his desire to play for The Gambia whenever he is invited has set his eyes on a move to one of the top European clubs with Manchester United his favourite.
