Swiss second-tier side Neuchâtel Xamax have recruited Sierra Leone skipper Umaru Bangura on a short term deal until the end of the 2020/2021 season with an option for the following season.

Bangura, 33, was released by FC Zurich, whose colours he had worn since 2016 (80 matches for the Swiss club, including 63 top-tier games).

Bangura joined FC Zurich from Dinamo Minsk at the beginning of August 2016 and helped the City club gain promotion to Super League during the 2016–17 season when they won the Challenge League ahead of Neuchâtel Xamax and returned after one year to the Super League
