Ousmane Fane signs a short-term deal with the Shrimps

18 January 2022

Morecambe Football Club have completed the signing of midfielder Ousmane Fane on a short-term contract.

The 28-year-old spent three years at Oldham Athletic and was brought to Boundary Park by Stephen Robinson during his time at the club.

After signing for the Shrimps, Fane said: “I am very happy, I am very excited about this new challenge, I have been in England before and this is a new start again for me. 

“I know the league well, I have played a lot of games in this league with Oldham, it is good to be back with the manager we know each other from our time there and I really hope that we can work well together again. 

“I am very energetic in midfield, I love to run, I love to do the dirty work for my team-mates. I will give my best every game, 100%, I hope they will see that when I am on the pitch. 

Robinson has handed the French national a deal until the end of the season and has impressed the manager since his arrival at the Club.

He added: “Ousmane gives us something different to the other midfielder that we have got at the Club, he is very direct, breaks up the play and provides that extra bit of cover for the back four.

“I have worked with him before when I was the manager at Oldham, he’s got experience at League One level and I am delighted to get him into the building."
