SIGNING: Mo returns as first summer arrival

Midfielder Mo Sangare joins the Reds from Newcastle United on a two-year contract

31 May 2022

Accrington Stanley have today completed the permanent signing of midfielder Mo Sangare from Newcastle United on a two-year contract.

Sangare, who previously had a loan spell at the Wham in 2020, made four first team appearances for the Reds but saw his time in East Lancashire cut short through injury.

Born in Monrovia, he moved to England at the age of 14 and attended Accrington and Rossendale College as a teenager.

The midfielder, who joined Newcastle in 2016, is also a Liberia international and has represented the Lone Stars on five occasions.

John Coleman said: "Mo is a good lad, he did well for us the first time around until an unfortunate injury.

"We think he'll have the capabilities to be a really good addition to the squad."

Sangare added: "I couldn't wait to come back, it's an opportunity and I took it. This place was like home when I was first here, it all started here, and it will be good to play in front of the fans.

"I only played four games and I feel I have unfinished business. I need people to see what I am capable of and what I can do and coming back here and being injury free (hopefully) will show the people what they missed."

Mo's first interview video will be uploaded to the club's official YouTube channel later today, CLICK HERE to find out more!

The move is subject to EFL and FA ratification, with Mo joining the club upon expiry of his current contract.
