Two Fresh International Faces At Swallows

Following the departure of some of the club’s high-profile players before transfer deadline on Monday, the Siya crew understands Swallows FC have welcomed two new players at the Birds’ Nest, with one already registered.

Habib Mohammed, a Ghanaian defender Soccer Laduma reported last week had put pen to paper at Sekhukhune United, has now surfaced at the Soweto club and indications are that he is in the process of getting his work permit.

Sekhukhune were fully aware that Mohammed was unlikely to play for them during the current 2021/22 campaign due to the club having already exhausted their foreign quota of five as per the NSL handbook.

According to Siya sources, the player will then play for Swallows and could in fact still return to Sekhukhune should the two teams settle on a gentleman’s agreement in July.  

The second player currently being assessed by coach Dylan Kerr at the Dube Birds is striker Abdul Fatawu Safiu, whose previous club was Swedish third tier outfit FC Trollhattan, where he had signed a deal until December 2023.

Safiu, also Ghanaian, being at Swallows now suggests he is currently a free agent!

The Dube Birds parted ways with veterans Thabo Matlaba and Vuyo Mere recently, although the squad was already quite bloated from the signings made earlier in the season.

Kerr joined Swallows at the end of November on a short-term deal until the end of the campaign – letting his work do the talking.

Mohammed is expected to make his debut as soon as his paperwork has been sorted, while Safiu must still impress the technical team.  

Have a look at some of Swallows other signings this season.
