– This is a transition we have been working on since August. There is no one who deserves it more than Taofeek Ismaheel. He has worked really hard and performed very well over a long period of time, says Mikail Adampour to VG.
After long negotiations between Fredrikstad and Lorient, the transition finally went through at the last minute.
– It’s completely wild. It has not been fun. Those who say otherwise, they are lying. The transition went through 23.59. It was incredibly stressful, says Adampour.
He does not want to comment on the transfer fee.
In the last 20 matches in the OBOS league, he delivered 13 goals and several assists.
Consequently, he was also named this year’s breakthrough at level two in Norway.
Fredrikstad has previously said that they turned down a bid for Ismaheel this summer because he was overestimated by the club.
Now the career in Ligue 1 and French Lorient, who has previously secured Ibrahima Koné from Sarpsborg 08 for what was a record sum for the Sarpings, continues.
Sports manager in the neighboring town of Fredrikstad, Joacim Heier, has not yet responded to VG’s inquiry, but wrote in an SMS on Monday that “the club takes player logistics internally at the house before in the media”.
