The 31-year-old struggled for game time at Downs after his move from SuperSport United at the beginning of last season. The lanky forward could only notch up five starts in all competitions for the Brazilians in the 2014/15 campaign.

During the off season the Senegalese decided to go in search for game time and ended up signing a season-long loan deal with Cypriot side Limassol.

“I had two options – interest from Sweden and interest from Cyprus. At first I wanted to go to Sweden but, due to some delays, the move didn’t materialise on time so we decided to consider this one,” he told Soccer Laduma.

“They tabled an offer, my agent and I spoke about it and then we discussed it with Sundowns. We all agreed it was a good offer.”

“I needed to play, which is the main reason we listened to the interested teams in the first place, as I was still contracted to Sundowns. So I’ve signed a season-long loan deal. It is very important for me to play,” he added.
