The Tulsa Roughnecks officially announced another addition to their 2017 roster today, as defender Modou Jadama has come to terms for upcoming season. The deal is pending final league and federation approval.
The 22-year-old Jadama comes to Tulsa after a recent stint with Coquimbo Unido in Chile’s second division. He joined Coquimbo on loan from famed Colo-Colo of Chile’s Premier Division.
He made his professional debut with Colo-Colo, appearing in a 2015 Copa Chile match against Santiago. He later suffered a knee injury, setting up his loan to Coquimbo.
Jadama is from Atlanta, Georgia but was born in Sierre Kunda, Gambia.
“Mo is a very exciting prospect who grew up in the Atlanta area, but he has learned his crafts by spending 2½ years with Chilean powerhouse Colo-Colo,” said Roughnecks head coach David Vaudreuil. “He has composure and technical ability beyond his years that make him an exciting prospect.”
Jadama has played in a pair of preseason matches for the Roughnecks as a central defender.
He and the Roughnecks are scheduled to open the 2017 USL regular season on Saturday, March 25 when they host Colorado Springs at ONEOK Field. A number of ticket packages for the 2017 season are available at RoughnecksFC.com. Fans can also inquire about tickets by calling (918)744-5901.
