Modou Lamin Cham, an emerging young Gambian footballer has signed professional terms in Portugal, ForoyaaModou Lamin Cham Sport can report.

The defensive midfielder joined Portugal’s SC Praiense on a two-year deal yesterday afternoon from Norway fourth division side Nordstrand IF –the club where Fredrik Fladby another Gambian player plies his trade.

Cham, born in the UK to Gambian parents, transfer to SC makes him the second Gambian trading in his services in Lisbon after uncapped left-back Seejou King of Club Sporting Lisbon.

Speaking to Foroyaa Sport shortly after signing yesterday, the 20-year-old said: ‘I feel delighted. It’s my first professional contract. I have worked my whole life to be a successful football player. And now I have got to start my professional journey. Hopefully I’ll manage to play for big clubs in Norway (in the future).

The left footed young ace capable of fielding as a left-back will be required to adapt to the Portuguese culture, different from the one he’d gotten used to in Oslo. This, he said, wouldn’t cause him any problems.

‘It’s obviously different (Portuguese culture) and I would have to watch and learn sometimes, but as a footballer these are the kind of challenges you are supposed to go through and cope with. And I am up for the challenge,’ he told Foroyaa Sport from his base in Europe.

Modou Lamin is eligible to play for either England –his birth place –or Norway but the starlet has his eyes fixed on playing for Gambia instead.

He featured twenty-one times including cup competitions for former club Nordstrand IF.
