Weeks following the transfer of some local players to clubs abroad, there have also been some transfer deals taking place among some foreign-based Liberian players, among them William Jebor, Tonia Tisdell, and Oscar Dorley.
In Morocco, media reports said striker William Jebor has finally completed his return to Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca, on a free transfer after terminating his contract with Al Nassr KSA in Saudi Arabia.
Jebor had earlier arrived in Morocco in July to sign his contract, and was awaiting the formalization of his return to the club.
Wydad Club president, Said Naciri, told the media that the Liberian striker officially signed a three-year contract with the club last week, and will form part of the team’s lineup for their upcoming matches.
Naciri made the announcement on the sidelines of a farewell conference to the club Tunisian coach, Faouzi Benzarti, who took the reins of the selection of his country.
Jebor joined Wydad in summer 2016, from Portuguese side Rio Ave, and had a successful campaign with the Moroccan side where he was named the Moroccan first division top scorer with 19 goals.
The 26-year-old forward later moved to Al Nassr, where he agreed a three-year contract with the Saudi Arabian Club. His move to the Saudi Arabian league was marred by criticism, which later increased after Wydad won the CAF Champions League, the following season after he left the club.
Jebor’s mind was focused on delivering the his best performance for Al Nassr, but did not accomplish his aims, something that led to the termination of his contract with the Saudi Abraian Club on a mutual understanding.
While at Al Nassr, he featured in 11 matches in the Saudi Professional League in the first six months.
In Turkey, Turkish Club Denizlispor have completed the signing of Liberian international Tonia Tisdell on a one year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The deal was officially finalized Thursday, August 2, after the 26-year-old completed his medical.
Mustafa Yukek, President of Denizlispor Club, expressed gratitude for securing the signature of the Liberian player, and eagerness to watch him play for the team.
Elsewhere, Czech First League Club Slovan Liberec have announced that midfielder Oscar Dorley will be staying with them for the 2018-19 season after requesting another loan from FK Trakai.
The request of the loan deal by the club comes after missing out on signing the 19-year-old Liberian on a permanent deal, because of his somewhat high value.
According to German-based players’ statistics website, Transfermarkt, Dorley is valued at more than US$586,000.
Dorley joined the Czech team during the 2017-18 season winter transfer from FK Trakai, and made 12 appearances, scored one goal and provided six assists to help the club finish in the sixth position of the last season.
The extension of Dorley’s loan deal was announced via Slovan Liberec’s official Facebook page.
