Kaikai relishes fresh start with Chairboys

Summer signing looks forward to making a strong impression at Adams Park.

15 July 2021

Wycombe Wanderers' new recruit Sullay Kaikai says he “can’t wait to get to work” after his summer transfer to Adams Park.

The 25-year-old attacker has signed a two-year deal with the Chairboys, having left Blackpool after two years in the North West.  

The Sierra Leone international played a part in the Tangerines’ push to securing promotion via the League One play-offs, scoring seven goals and registering eight assists. 

"It feels good to finally get the deal over the line," Kaikai says. "It's been something that's been in the works for a few weeks now so I'm delighted to be here.

"I've played Wycombe a few times now in my career and it's always been a tough game, so obviously it's good to be on the other side and playing for them. I'm looking forward to being a part of it now."

Kaikai joins the Chairboys after a successful season with former club Blackpool, despite being sidelined with injury as Neil Critchley's side defeated Lincoln City in the League One play-off final.

The blow of missing out on the final would be softened in June however as he made his debut appearance for Sierra Leone, coming on in a 1-0 victory over Benin to help the Leone Stars qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 1996.

"It was an amazing feeling," gleams Kaikai. "The love that I received out there was unbelievable, it was an honour to play for my country, so I'm really happy with that."

Speaking on his arrival at Marlow Road, Kaikai is eager to meet up with his new teammates and join the Chairboys' pre-season preparations in the run up to the 2021/22 season.

"I've been very impressed with the training ground and the gym," states Kaikai. "The facilities have really surprised me with how good they've been, so I can't wait to get to work.

"I'd describe myself as a player that likes to play with freedom and express myself on the pitch, and do things that probably most players don't do and bring excitement to the fans."
