Hodbro boss hints on possible Sabbi departure

Emmanuel Sabbi

Sporting Director of Hodbro IK, Jens Hammer, has said the club is not likely to hold on to US international of Ghanaian parentage Emmanuel Sabbi in the Summer transfer window.

Hammer mentioned that the winger’s stock keep rising and with two goals in three games already this season, there is no way they can maintain him as suitors keep coming.

“I don’t think we can keep him, and if I was in a big club in Denmark,  I would have taken him. He is not a finished product yet, and can play at a high level,” Hammer told SBT.

“Some people have rated him as worth $10m, but I will like to sell him for less. There is interest in him, and the transfer window works for us, because of him people come to watch our matches and he delivered at a high level against Randers.”

Israeli giants Maccaibi Haifa and fellow Danish topflight side Brondby have their radar on the 21-year-old this summer.

Sabbi was born to Ghanaian parents in the Italian city of  Vicenza but grew up in the United States. He is still eligible to represent Ghana or Italy at senior level, despite representing the Yankees up to the Under 23 stage.
