Musa Noah Kamara joins Trelleborgs from Champions East End Lions
Sierra Leone striker Musa Noah Kamara has moved to Sweden to join second-tier side Trelleborgs.
The 19-year-old, who has one international cap so far, is set for his first stint outside of Sierra Leone and has signed a three-and-a-half year contract.
“Musa is a strong forward and a goal scorer,” Trelleborgs manager Peter Swardh told the club’s website.
Kamara finished as the top goal scorer of 2019 Sierra Leone Premier league with 15 goals to help East End Lions emerge as champions.

Musa Noah Kamara from Sierra Leone has signed a three-and-a-half-year agreement with TFF. But the club is working on yet another reinforcement of an offensive player before the transfer window closes on Tuesday.
19-year-old striker Musa Noah Kamara has been playing with the club for the past week. He was so impressed that TFF now chooses to sign a long contract with him.
- Above all, we have a long-term idea with him. He probably needs a couple of months to adapt to our game and get acquainted with the club and a new environment. But he is competing for a place directly, says Peter Swärdh, manager of TFF.
- He thought that Musa Noah Kamara showed good intentions during his week’s rehearsal
- We believe that the potential is high in him. He has physical and playful qualities that are interesting and he quickly took instructions. Then he has a documented performance in his home country, says Peter Swärdh.
This past season, the 19-year-old has played for East End Lions in his home country of Sierra Leone.
Kamara has made matches for Sierra Leone’s senior national team – his debut came last year – and he has also represented the West African country’s U20 national team.
He visited Sweden last fall when he was invited to test training with Hammarby, without getting a contract.
