by | May 19, 2022 | African News, Football Africa, Sport News | 3 comments

EFL Championship Middlesbrough have confirmed the signing of Sierra Leone international midfielder Kamil Conteh this summer.

The 19-year-old, who was named in the Sierra Leone African Cup of Nations squad for qualifying matches on June 9th and 13th, respectively, will officially join Boro from Watford when his contract expires at the end of June.

Over the last few weeks, Conteh has been on trial and featured for the Boro Under-23s at Nottingham Forest last month.

He made his Leone Stars debut in the 3-0 defeat against Togo in an international training camp in Turkey on March 23, before he featured for half an hour of their 1-0 win over Liberia at the Mardan Stadium in Aksu, Antalya, Turkey for Sierra Leone. 

He was part of the final 2-1 triumph over Congo as the Leone Stars wrapped a successful international break.

As a youngster, Kamil was with Crystal Palace’s Academy and played for Lambeth Tigers before joining Watford as a scholar in 2018. He signed his first professional deal with the Hornets last summer.
