Yeovil Town have signed up former Reading winger Abdulai Bell-Baggie on a short term contract. The 19 year old has agreed to stay at Huish Park until January, after being on trial at the club during pre-season. He has been assigned the No.12 shirt for his time at the club.
Bell-Baggie was born in Sierra Leone on April 28th 1992, but became part of Reading's academy set-up at the age of nine, and also attended Hillside and Bulmershe College in Berkshire. He also spent some time with Southampton's academy before returning to Berkshire. He did not make a first team appearance for Reading, but went out on loan to Rotherham United, Port Vale and Crawley Town.
Abdulai has international experience at England Under-16 and Under-17 level, having been part of the England side that won the Victory Shield in 2007. He has two caps at Under-17s level. Whilst on loan at Rotherham, their manager Ronnie Moore described him as two-footed, and indicated that he was capable of playing on the left-wing.
He has signed a four month contract at the club, and should now be fully available for first team selection when required.
