Gambia risk having a talent of their own poached by Norway, Foroyaa Sport can reveal.

Bilal Njie is the player at the centre of the storm and could be the subject of a tug-of-war if Gambia Football Federation scouts go on to throw their hat in the ring on his pursuit.

The Scandinavian country are on a talent search for their youth national teams and consider the Oslo-born a potential inclusion.

The midfielder shunned overtures to extend his stay with Valerenga to ink a three-year deal with Skien-based Norwegian Premier League side Oddsballklub.

Bilal is a sibling to Moussa Njie who is also being courted by Norway’s national team until his move to Partizan turned unfruitful owing to injuries.

He has since returned to Norway and shares the same club with Bilal but is being dogged by an injury recurrence.

Bilal qualifies to play for Gambia through his parents.

While a player’s willingness is deciding factor over where he commits his international allegiance, Norway has poached several Gambians previously in Joshua King of Bournemouth, Pa Modou Kah and John Carew –the people of African descent in Norway’s national team.
