Grimsby Town Football Club has made a significant signing ahead of the upcoming season, securing the services of Sierra Leone international midfielder Kamil Conteh on a three-year deal.
The 20-year-old has joined the Mariners from Middlesbrough, marking a new chapter in his promising career.
The transfer was confirmed by Grimsby Town, who reached an agreement with Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee. Kamil Conteh caught the attention of Grimsby’s coaching staff with his impressive performances for Gateshead in the National League last season, making him a highly sought-after player.
Expressing his satisfaction with the signing, Grimsby Town coach Paul Hurst stated, “I’m really 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. He’s 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.”
The acquisition of Kamil Conteh is seen as a profitable move for Middlesbrough, who initially acquired him on a free transfer. The undisclosed fee paid by Grimsby Town reflects the player’s growing value and potential.
Kamil Conteh is the latest addition to Paul Hurst’s squad as the manager prepares his team for the challenges of the 2023-24 season. Alongside Conteh, the Mariners have also secured the signings of John McAtee, Tyrese Fornah, and Ryan Taylor further bolstering their squad and increasing competition for places..
The fans of Grimsby Town are eagerly anticipating the start of the new season, hoping that the combination of experienced players and promising talents like Kamil Conteh will lead the team to success. The midfielder’s ability to control the game from the middle of the park and contribute both defensively and offensively will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the team’s aspirations.
