Gateshead FC is delighted to confirm that Kamil Conteh’s loan has been extended until April 29, 2023, subject to National League approval.
The midfielder initially joined on loan from EFL Championship side Middlesbrough in September 2022, with the original loan deal set to run until January 2, 2023.
Conteh has since gone on to cement his place as a regular fixture in Mike Williamson’s midfield, making 15 appearances from a possible 16 games as well as scoring two goals against Stevenage and Southend United.
“I’ve been getting messages on Instagram and Twitter asking what’s going on!” said Conteh.
“For it to be confirmed now, I’m happy and I’m looking forward to helping the team climb out of the situation we’re in and go forward.
“I’ve been playing week in, week out and I feel like the last few weeks I’ve been improving on the ball, off the ball and understanding my role within the team.
“There’s no reason why I should end up going somewhere else and having to try to fight my way back into the team when I’m in a system [at Gateshead] where I’m playing week, in week out and I understand the role.”
