Sierra Leone International Kamil Conteh has completed a three-year deal with League Two side Grimsby Town Football Club from Middlesbrough.

“The Mariners are delighted to confirm the signing of Sierra Leone midfielder Kamil Conteh on a three-year deal after agreeing an undisclosed fee with Middlesbrough.”

The former Watford graduate heads to the League Two club on the back of a successful loan spell with fifth-tier National League side Gateshead in the second half of last season.

Conteh, 20, joined the Sky Bet Championship club last summer from fellow second-tier side Watford and spent most of last season with fifth-tier side Gateshead in the National League.

An impressive campaign saw him voted their Fans’ Player of the Year and helped the Tyneside club reach the FA Trophy Final.

Manager Paul Hurst is pleased with Conteh’s addition. He said, “I am pleased to have signed Kamil. He was on our wishlist for some time, certainly over the summer and at the end of last season when we watched him a few times.

“He really impressed us then,so he’s been an ongoing target for us. Kamil a good midfield player. He can play off either foot and receives the ball well. He gets around the pitch extremely well and he is a young player that we feel has got so much potential.”
