Italian Serie A new boys SPAL continue to bolster their ranks by signing Gambian talent Pa Momodou Konate on a three-year contract, with an option of a further year.
The left-back arrives from Malmö FF, coming up through the Swedish Allsvenskan club’s academy, before a loan spell at Östers IF in 2014.

He travelled to Italy on Wednesday to undergo a medical before penning a deal with the Biancazzurri on Thursday morning.
“I have had a great education in Malmö where it’s tough to play. You have to work hard and it has given me a lot of fun as there is a winning culture here and it feels natural to win. I would like to thank all the supporters, all the coaches and all my teammates for these great years I had here,” Konate said in his parting words with his boyhood club.The 23-year-old will don the number three jersey at his new club, who kickoff the 2017/18 Serie A season on August 20 at SS Lazio.
