KOLKATA: Mohammedan Sporting signed Ivorian striker Desmos Kouassi on a deal that runs until the end of the 2018-19 season.

The much-travelled player has been added to the squad to strengthen attacking options further as the club was looking for someone who can assist skipper Philip Adjah.

Kouassi began his career with Chinese Super League club Shenzhen FC in 2012 before moving to Hong Kong First Division side Citizen AA for the 2013 season.

After leaving Hong Kong, Kouassi spent three seasons in the Philippines with Manila Jeepney and Global FC, which reached the 2016 UFL Cup final but lost 3-1 to Ceres.

After leaving Global FC, Kouassi scored six goals in thirteen games for Chin United in the Myanmar National League during the first half of 2017.

In the second half, Kouassi returned to the Philippines with Ilocos United, scoring eleven goals in twenty games before leaving in early 2018.

He joined Mongolian Premier League side Ulaanbaatar City FC last year April and played under current Neroca FC coach Manuel Retamero Fraile.
