Tricky winger Kaikai became the Chairboys’ third signing of the 2021/22 season, following a summer where he was released from Blackpool but made his international debut with Sierra Leone.
Born in London, Kaikai began his footballing career with local club Crystal Palace, claiming it was a “dream come true” to play for his boyhood team, despite leaving after just 3 appearances in his 7 years with the Premier League club.
Sullay saw loans to five different clubs in his time as an Eagle, with the standout spells being his two loans to Shrewsbury Town in the 15/16 season where he boasted 12 goals and 5 assists in just 25 league 1 games, all at just twenty years old.
The 2016/17 season saw Kaikai gain Championship experience with 18 games for Brentford and 3 goals to show for his loan spell. He also got a Premier League appearance as a substitute against Manchester United.
In 2019, Sullay moved on from the Eagles to NAC Breda in the Eredivisie, however struggled with injury and game time only managing 6 appearances.
Upon his return to England, Kaikai managed to make his mark at a permanent club, where he scored 11 goals and provided 11 assists over two seasons for Blackpool, showing himself to be one of League One’s trickiest wingers given consistent game time.
Having proven himself as an exciting and creative player, posting great numbers in League One, Kaikai received his first international call up in the summer of 2021, making his Sierra Leone debut in a 1-0 victory over Benin in qualification for the upcoming African Cup of Nations.
