Salford City have signed midfielders Devonte Redmond and Amine Linganzi until the end of the season.
Former Manchester United youngster Redmond, 22, was released by the Red Devils in June 2018, having spent time on loan at Scunthorpe United last season, where he played under Ammies boss Graham Alexander. Having been without a club since June, Redmond is looking forward to getting back out on the pitch:
“I’m delighted, obviously I’ve been out the game for a little bit but it’s a good opportunity for me now and I’m just glad that it came from such a big club. It’s a project, it’s a place that’s going places, and the owners of the club are legends so it didn’t take much to convince anyone to come and sign!”
29-year-old Linganzi has been without a club since leaving Swindon Town at the end of last season, where he scored four goals in 29 appearances. A former St. Etienne and Blackburn Rovers player, Linganzi has spent most of his career in England and in 2016-17 won promotion to League One with Portsmouth.
Speaking to the club after signing his contract, the former Congolese international said:
“[I’m] really delighted, really happy to be here at a club who is really ambitious. I think every player wants that, I’ve come in January and as you can see we’re in a really good position to go up to League Two and this is my aim, this is why I came, to be successful.
“I had a good chat with the manager and he welcomed me very well, the players as well, I trained and they’ve given me the chance now. It’s a great opportunity to come here and be in the position where we want to go up. I had the opportunity with Portsmouth to go up, now I want to do the same thing here.”
