Swedish Allsvenskan side AIK are still eyeing Nyköpings BIS centre-back Ishmael ‘Jaw Jaw’ Koroma.

The 20-year-old was invited and played for the AIK’s U-21 side in an official league encounter last night against Orebro SK U-21 but did not want to comment on any transfer talks.

Koroma and Nyköpings’s teammates Samuel Kroon and Alegi Barrow were part of the AIK’s winning side; they won 4-2 at the Rosvalla IP (Nyköpings) Stadium on Tuesday.
