Alassana Jatta




Date of birth



192 cm





The Gambian forward joined us for an undisclosed fee from Danish Superliga side Viborg FF at the end of the January transfer window.

Jatta, who signed a two-and-a-half year deal, scored 21 goals in 103 appearances for his previous club – the last of which came against reigning champions FC Copenhagen.

Born in the Gambia, Jatta stands at 6ft 4” and Richard Montague, who sits on our board and leads on recruitment, was pleased that the club has won the highly competitive battle for his signature.

He said: “We’re really excited about the qualities Alassana will bring to our forward line in terms of his stature, pace and power.

“We also feel he has the energy and willingness to press relentlessly from the front, something we demand from all our forwards.

“With our owners, Chris and Alex Reedtz, being involved at Viborg we also have an excellent insight into his character and therefore know he has conducted himself in a thoroughly professional, positive and hard-working manner throughout his time there.

“We rate the Danish league highly and have been impressed with how he’s performed at the top level over the last three seasons, so we think he can be very effective for us in League Two and at a higher level in the future.

“Viborg play in a relatively similar way to us, so we feel Alassana can make a quick adaptation to life at Meadow Lane and add fresh impetus to what is already a highly potent attack.

“We also know that he turned down another very attractive move to join us, which highlights his enthusiasm for the club and the ambitions we’ve outlined to him.”
