Sangare signs on loan from Newcastle

Midfielder is Stanley's fifth signing of the summer

28 August 2020

Accrington Stanley have made their fifth summer signing with the addition of Mo Sangare from Newcastle United.

The 21-year-old midfielder has signed on a season-long loan.

Sangare came over to England from Liberia when he was 14 and was actually with Stanley’s development squad as a youngster but work permit problems meant he was unable to sign at that time.

He went on trial to various clubs before joining Newcastle in 2016 and was promoted to their first team in 2019. This is his first loan spell away from United and he is glad to come to a place he knows.

“It’s good to be back. I spent around eight months here when I first came over from Liberia," said Sangare.

"When I first came over, I couldn’t speak a lot of English and going to Accrington and Rossendale College helped me.

“I know Ross Sykes and Reagan Ogle from that time and obviously it helps with Tom Allan being here on loan from Newcastle as well.

“On the field, I would describe myself as aggressive and powerful, I like to get forward but I also help out defensively depending on the situation.

“I think the football will suit me here, physically I am sure I will cope and now getting used to the lads is key and try and get myself in the team."

Manager John Coleman said: “He is a young lad, we know him, he was here as a kid but we couldn’t get a work permit for him at that time.

"He went to Ireland and made his way to Newcastle and he is a strong presence in midfield and it’s an area we needed to strengthen.

“Once he gets himself fully fit, he will be a big asset.”
