Kallon buys own club
Mohammed Kallon is having a good spell at Inter Milan
Kallon is Sierra Leone's most successful player ever
Inter Milan striker, Mohamed Kallon, has reached an agreement to buy a club in Sierra Leone.

FC Kallon, formerly Real Republicans, changed its name in 2000 holding discussions with the player about a buy-out.

But only now has the deal been finalised.

Speaking to BBC Sport Online, Team Manager Unisa Bangura said they had agreed a price of $30,000, and Kallon would pay the money in cash.

The striker is due to arrive in Freetown to play for the national side against Equatorial Guinea in a Nations Cup qualifier on September 8.

The club had earlier given Kallon a 21-day ultimatum to pay $50,000 plus football equipment to buy the club.

"We decided to reduce the amount. We know this time round he really means business and I think we need to be reasonable," Bangura said.

FC Kallon have changed their name a number of times in recent years as they have swapped sponsors.
