Sky Bet League One side Cambridge United Football Club have confirmed the signing of Sierra Leone International Sullay Kaikai on a one-year deal.

Kaikai, 27, said he was pleased after rejoining the U’s on a year deal following leaving MK Dons.

The winger signed for Dons on a short-term deal in January, making 14 appearances under Mark Jackson. Kaikai found the back of the net twice against Oxford United and Accrington Stanley. 

He was offered a deal to remain at the club after relegation following the expiry of his contract in the summer. However r, after a spell training with Championship side Rotherham United, he has returned to League One with the U’s. 

Kaikai has played at the Abbey Stadium – formerly having spent a loan spell there in 2014/15 and making 30 appearances. 

He said: “It feels good. I am excited to be back, and it’s a great opportunity for me. I did well the first time I was here, so I want to replicate that and have a strong season. 

“The way the manager wants to play will suit me down to a tee, having that freedom in the final third, so I am looking forward to it.”

After coming through the Crystal Palace Academy, Kaikai made 11 appearances for the Eagles interspersed between loan spells at several EFL clubs, including Shrewsbury, Brentford and Charlton.

Kaikai left Palace in 2019 and signed for Eredivisie side NAC Breda before joining Blackpool on a two-year contract, scoring 13 goals in 68 appearances.

Moves to Wycombe and MK Dons followed, before now, signing for the U’s as Mark Bonner’s fifth summer signing.
