Sudan’s Al Hilal Omdurman have announced the signing of Jamaica defender Alvas Elvis Powell and Senegalese forward Ibrahima Mame N’Diaye.
Powell, 26, who joined from David Beckham’s MLS side Inter Miami sign a contract until the end of the season, with an option for a one-year extension.
Powell spent most of Inter Miami’s inaugural Major League Soccer season as an unused substitute, playing just four matches in total and only starting two of those.
The Jamaican previously played for Cincinnati FC where he spent the 2019 season. He also played for the Portland Timbers for six years.
Powell was a key member of the Portland Timbers squad that won the 2015 MLS Cup. He made 31 regular season appearances and six playoff appearances en route to the title, starting in each one.
He also has 49 caps for Jamaica including playing at two Gold Cups and two Caribbean Cups, which he won in 2014.
N’Diaye, 26, joined from Serbian side FK Čukarički. The forward played for ASC Linguère in Senegal before Serbian club, Napredak Kruševac, in 2012.
In 2017, N’Diaye joined Danish club Randers on a five-month contract, making seven competitive appearances for the side and scoring one goal in the Danish Cup.
In 2018, N’Diaye returned to Serbia and his former club Napredak Kruševac.
The deal for the players was reportedly organised and financially backed by Al Hilal’s honorary president Turki Al Sheikkh, a wealthy businessman who is also the chairman of Saudi’s General Entertainment Authority and former owner of Egyptian club Pyramids.
