French Striker Arrives

27 January 2014

THE Mariners have signed Stevenage striker Oumare Tounkara on a loan deal until the end of the season.

He began his career with Ligue 2 outfit Sedan in 2008/09 before joining Sunderland in the summer of 2009. 

The 22-year old Paris-born player spent three years on the books of the Wearside club before being released in 2012.

 He signed for Oldham Athletic in August 2010 in a season long loan deal, playing 52 games and scoring eight times, before enjoying another eight game loan spell in 2011/12 in which he scored once. 

In February 2013 Tounkara joined Bristol Rovers on a week-long trial which resulted in him being awarded a short-term contract until the end of the season. 

Oumare joined Stevenage prior to the start of the 2013/14 campaign. 

He is expected to go straight into the Town squad to face Cambridge tomorrow night.
