French national first division side, FC Metz have signed Gambian international U20 skipper Ablie Jallow on a five year deal.

Reports reveal that the Gambian completes his switch from Metz's official partner in Senegal, Generation Foot, who he helped win the league last season.

The BBC website reports that Generation Foot's coach Olivier Perrin was delighted with the move and remains confident the 18-year-old will do well.


"One of his strengths is his vision during the game, he's always able to anticipate what will happen," Perrin told the Metz website.

"He's comfortable with the ball at his feet, it's beautiful to see him play.

"He has also improved his finishing this season."

Jallow initially joined the Senegalese outfit on loan in 2015 from Gambian club Real de Banjul before the deal was made permanent last year.

He joins his former Generation Foot teammate and Senegal U20 striker Ibrahima Niane at Metz after he signed for them over the weekend.

Niane was the top scorer last season for the Senegalese champions.
