Seator signs for Esperance

Liberian striker Frank Seator's trial with Tunisian giants Esperance has been turned into a season's loan.

Seator said he was initially unaware that the deal had been confirmed.

"I was surprised when my agent Zarrouk Abdellatif called me to say the move was complete.

"He decided that after some great years in the Gulf, playing for the Tunisian's would enable me to develop my talent so I might get into a European club".

Seator, who was in Liberia's squad at the Nations Cup in Mali, has spent five years in the Middle East, playing for teams in Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

"The Gulf might be luxurious, but if you look at Europe now there are hardly any Liberians there - only Prince Daye," the striker said.

"This is not normal - so I've decided to come to Tunisia where European scouts are frequently present.

"It's a lucrative contract, and I hope to live up the fabulous image that George Weah has set in Liberian football."

Seator, is expected to make his debut on 14 December, and is hoping to have a chance to play in continental competition.
