Kaikai joins U's ranks

Cambridge United are delighted to announce the signing of Sullay Kaikai on a one-year deal…

The 27-year-old attacker joins the Club for a second time, having already made 30 appearances for the U’s on loan in 2014/15. During that spell, Kaikai scored 6 goals, confirming himself as an Amber Army fan favourite.

After coming through the Crystal Palace Academy, Kaikai made 11 appearances for the Eagles interspersed between loan spells at a number of EFL clubs, including Shrewsbury, Brentford and Charlton.

Kaikai left Palace in 2019 and signed for Eredivisie side, NAC Breda, before joining Blackpool on a two-year contract, where he scored 13 goals in 68 appearances.

Moves to Wycombe and MK Dons followed, before now signing for the U’s as Mark Bonner’s fifth summer signing.

Kaikai said, “It feels good. I am excited to be back and it's a great opportunity for me. I did well the first time I was here so I want to replicate that and have a strong season.

"The way the manager wants to play will suit me down to a tee, having that freedom in the final third, so I am really looking forward to it."

Mark Bonner said. “I am delighted to be welcoming Sullay back with us and believe his athleticism, attacking qualities and attitude make him a brilliant addition. He manipulates the ball well in tight spaces, dribbles at pace and will create and score goals.

"Sullay will be familiar to some supporters from his loan spell with us previously and joins us fit and ready to go, having played games in recent weeks. Last season saw him continue to add to his tally of League One games and we are signing a player with good experience at this level and an excellent temperament."
