Sangare – who had a loan spell at Accrington Stanley last season, and has represented Liberia at international level – has thanked the club in an Instagram post.

"First page of my football book has been written,” said 23-year-old Sangare, whose contract expires this summer. “Firstly I want to thank everyone at @nufc for making me the person I am today.

"Coming to the club age 16 and also being new in the country wasn’t east but I can say I am proud off the person I have become on and off the pitch it’s been bumpy road full with lots off ups and downs, however my time at NUFC has come to an end.

"All the memories, friends, staffs I will never forget it’s been a pleasure. Time to go show the world what mo is about #letsgo.”

Sangare was born in Liberia, and moved to England aged 14.

Speaking to nufc.co.uk in 2019, Sangare said: “It was all new. Like, everything was new.“One thing I will say is that friends are very important – who you follow, what you do and making decisions from there. Obviously, I’ve learnt a lot from when I first came, but I wasn’t very smart. It was hard.”

Sangare has made five appearances – and scored one goal – for Liberia.
