Sulayman Marreh told to find new club by Valladolid

Spanish club Real Valladolid’s sporting director Miguel Ángel Gómez has told Gambia midfielder Sulayman Marreh that he is free to leave the club this month, Gambia Sports can report.

The Scorpion international, who joined Valladolid in July, has struggled to make an impact at the second-tier club since his loan move from Premier League side Watford, failing to make any league appearance.

Real Valladolid, who usually tend to line up with only one out-and-out defensive midfielder, rely heavily upon former Real Madrid player Borja Fernández and thus limiting Marreh to only four Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) appearances.

As such, the 21-year-old is surplus to requirements and Valladolid’s sporting director, has instructed the Gambian to find a new club.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper Diario AS, Miguel Ángel Gómez said: “Sully [Marreh], evidently, is going to get out. He is a young player with tremendous conditions that he has to play and he is not doing it here.”

The former Samger midfielder joined Watford at some point during pre-season earlier on though his arrival was not announced. Until at least May, he played for Granada, where he was a regular for their second string and started 21 games in Segunda B, the Spanish third tier, last season.

He scored four goals for Granada during his three years with the club and in 2014 was likened to Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba by then coach Joseba Aguado.
