Crawley poised to sign striker

First published in Crawley Town by

Crawley will complete the signing of striker Lateef Elford-Aliyu tomorrow.

The 20-year-old has agreed a six-month contract with Reds after being released by Bury today and could go straight into the squad for the home game against Colchester United tomorrow.

Elford-Aliyu joined the Shakers on a one-year deal in the summer after being released by West Brom. The former England under-17 international played under Reds boss Richie Barker during a loan spell at Gigg Lane last season.

He made just five league appearances for Bury this season with four coming off the substitutes' bench and agreed his exit from Bury by mutual consent.

Elford-Aliyu did not make a senior appearance for WBA but has had loan spells at Hereford, Tranmere - scoring five in 16 games - and Icelandic top flight outfit Keflavijk.
