Enfield Town striker Muhammadu Faal has signed an 18-month contract with EFL League One strugglers Bolton Wanderers.

Faal has appeared as a trialist for Bolton’s under-23 side in a number of fixtures recently but he has now put to paper on the deal which sees him jump up four steps in the English football pyramid.

The 22-year-old, who notched 27 goals in 30 appearances in his time at the club, arrived from Kingstonian in December 2018 having started his career with Italian club L’Aquila in Serie D.

He joined up with Dulwich Hamlet for the start of the 2017/18 season and initially moved to Kingstonian on loan before making it permanent.

Faal told the Bolton Wanderers website: “It feels great to be here. I am ecstatic to have got the deal done and I just can’t wait to get started.

“First and foremost, I want to say I will work hard for this team. The team always comes first.

“But saying that, I do like to get on the ball and score goals. I am looking forward to showing the fans what I can do.”

Meanwhile, Enfield manager Andy Leese told the club website: “After all the recent speculation, Mo has decided to take an offer to play professional football at Bolton mand we are obviously delighted for him. We worked hard to get him to the club and to keep him here during the close season.

“The management team have asked the squad to step up and fill the void, and I am confident they will do just that. I’d like to wish Mo well; he’s earned his chance and I am sure he will take it.

"I know he will miss the incredible support you have all shown him during his time at the club.”
