Gassan Ahadme joins on loan

27 June 2023

Cambridge United are delighted to announce the signing of Gassan Ahadme on a season-long loan…

The 22-year-old striker joins from Ipswich Town and becomes the Club’s third arrival this summer.

Ahadme moved to England from Spain as a teenager to join Norwich City’s Academy, before making the switch to Burton Albion in January 2022.

After an impressive eight months with the Brewers, he then signed for Ipswich Town ahead of the 2022/23 season.

A January loan return to Burton followed and he now joins the U’s as the team begins its pre-season preparations.

Gassan said, “I am really excited to be here. The Club has shown confidence in me and I am here to work as hard as I can to pay them back.

“The conversation [with Mark Bonner] was vital. He expressed to me his ideas and how he sees me fitting into this team and that is why I am here.

“I am ready to start working and I am really looking forward to it.”

“Gassan is a player we have been chasing for some time,” Mark Bonner said. “I am delighted he is joining us and excited by his potential and impact he can have on the team.

“He is a focused and driven character whose work ethic and athleticism will provide us with an attacking dimension that will benefit the team. He is a strong runner, links the game well with his back to goal and has the ability to score a variety of goals.

“As a high crossing and forward running team, he will fit into the style of our game really well and joins us at a time where he is determined to put his game together and find the excellent level that got him his move to Ipswich Town.

“We are grateful to Ipswich Town for making the move happen. I particularly want to thank Keiran McKenna and Martyn Pert for their support, and having been in discussion with the Club for a number of months, I believe this move can benefit all parties.”
