Accrington Stanley have made Newcastle prospect Mo Sangare their fifth summer signing.

The 21-year-old midfielder joins Tom Allan in arriving on a season-long loan from the Magpies but is no stranger to the Reds.

Having arrived in England from Liberia as a 14-year-old, Sangare trained with Stanley as a youngster but work permit problems prevented him from signing.

During that time he studied at Accrington and Rossendale College and played alongside current Stanley players Ross Sykes and Reagan Ogle.

He had to move on though and after several trials, including some time with Burnley, he was picked up by the Magpies.

Stanley boss John Coleman said: “He is a young lad who was at Accrington as a kid and we couldn’t get a work permit.

“He went to Ireland and then made his way to Newcastle and he’s a strong presence in midfield and we needed strengthening in there.

"He played behind closed doors against Blackburn this week and picked up a bit of hamstring strain.

“Once he gets himself fully fit he’ll be a good asset.”
