Bristol City could be about to miss out on one of their transfer targets this summer, with Accrington set to bid for Alhagi Touray Sisay according to Football Insider.
The League One side will be keen to try and keep pushing on in the third tier next season and that will mean some recruitment to their side this summer window.
They don’t have a big budget and are arguably one of the smaller clubs in the division but they may be about to bring in a fresh face in Sisay, who currently plays for Haverfordwest County. He has previously played in England with Grimsby but that time in League Two with the side resulted in only one game.
Quiz: Can you name which club Accrington Stanley sold these 26 players to?
It was the season in which Town were relegated from the Football League and he has since headed to Wales for more frequent gametime. With the player having impressed for the side, managing a haul of 15 goals last time out, he could be about to make a return to England.
A deal could be a cut-price one and the 22-year-old has already spent time with Stanley so will be acquainted with the team. He was allowed to join the club on trial and has clearly impressed, as they are now seemingly trying to tie up a more permanent move for the player.
It’ll be a blow for Bristol City though, who had also been weighing up a move for the youngster. He might not have been guaranteed gametime with the Robins but he could have been a player that they end up bringing through and using in the future (or at the very least, selling for a profit).
Instead though, it looks like Accrington will be trying to sort a deal out instead and hoping to bring in the player on a permanent transfer to the club.
Alhagi Touray Sisay is a player that won’t be known to too many but he could end up being a steal for Accrington Stanley this summer if the player does make the move.
The 22-year-old has impressed in Wales and whilst the club might not be in England – meaning he has a lack of experience in the EFL and the Football League minus that short cameo for Grimsby – he is still young and could develop into a much better player for them.
Stanley know the player already and what he can be capable of after his trial and it means that he will at least slot straight into the fold if the youngster does complete a deal to join the third tier outfit. They’ll be hoping that he can repeat the same feats he managed in Wales too.
Bristol City would probably be a worse move for the player too – and Stanley can offer him much more gametime.
