Swedish Third-Tier side Husqvarna FF have completed the signing of former Lyngby and Sierra Leone defender Ibrahim Koroma (Pictured)

Koroma, who will be 27 years old, next month signed a one-year contract with the club after ending his short spell with Danish club Lyngby BK.

Husqvarna FF Sporting director Iskander: “Ibrahim Koroma is a class player with experience from higher divisions with a wide range and high football skills.

“He is a fantastic player who has been a little damaged but is about to build up again.”

Koroma represented Sierra Leone as part of the U-17, U-20, and U-23 National Teams, before making his senior team debut in 2007.

Since then, he has represented his country on 14 occasions and was selected to play for the National team during the 2010 Cup of Nations and FIFA World Cup qualification campaign, playing as a starter in Sierra Leone’s matches against Nigeria, South Africa, and Equatorial Guinea.

In July 2014, Koroma was among 15 players and officials suspended indefinitely, over allegations of match-fixing relating to an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in 2008 against South Africa which ended 0-0.

He immediately denied any wrongdoing; the 6 ft 2 in defender has also had spells with D.C. United, Motala AIF, Trelleborgs FF and Varbergs BoIS.
