Yusupha Bobb is a Calcio Padova Spa player after transferring to the side on transfer deadline day, on Wednesday.
The former Gambia U-20 star was on the wish-list of a number of clubs on deadline day evening, notable among them being promoting-pursuing outfits.
Padova, Cosenza and Pordenone are sides ardent on making an immediate return to Italy Serie B (second division). The clubs, particularly Padova, want to beef up their set up and consider Bobb an ideal man to add to a tiring midfield.
Padova fought off rivalry from Pordenone, who like ambitious Cosenza, were willing to push the limits to snap up the Gambian.
The third tier club signed up Yusupha after agreeing terms with the player’s parent club Serie A’s Chievo Verona.
Of importance in the deal, is assurance of playing time to the Gambian-born seen as one for the future at Verona.
The erstwhile Hawks midfielder had rave reviews at Taranto featuring thirteen (13) times for the side, eleven of those from the starting lineup.
But the side, chastised a sinking ship by pundits, are seriously plummeting losing ten (10) of their twenty-two (22) league matches, drawing eight (8) times and managing to pull off just four (4).
