Neftchi Baku, a prominent club within the Azerbaijani Premier League, has made a decisive move in the transfer market by officially acquiring the services of Sierra Leonean midfielder Alpha Bedoh Conteh. The player has been signed for a three-and-a-half-year contract, after a successful stint with the Bulgarian club, Lokomotiv Plovdiv.
At the age of 23, the attacking midfielder has proven to be a rising star who has garnered attention for his electrifying performances at both the club and international levels. Known for his exceptional speed, dribbling skills, and eye for goal, Conteh poses a formidable threat on the flanks.
During his time with Lokomotiv, Conteh played a crucial role in the team's qualification for the playoffs in the Bulgarian First League, showcasing his talent in a higher-profile competition. His arrival at Neftchi Baku, currently positioned third in the Azerbaijan Premier League, offers the club the opportunity to boost their chances of European competition.
Conteh's ability to create and score goals himself will undoubtedly prove to be an invaluable asset in Neftchi Baku's pursuit of silverware. Moreover, his move to the Azerbaijani Premier League is a significant boost for Sierra Leonean football, further elevating the profile of the sport in his home country.
