Ivory Coast forward Kamo Bayi is set to pen a contract with I-League side NEROCA FC, Khel Now can confirm. The 26-year-old recently featured for another I-League side team Churchill Brothers FC prior to his new move. The player has rich experience on Indian soil playing for the likes of Mohammedans SC, Mohun Bagan, Aizawl FC, Gokulam Kerala FC, etc.
“Kamo Bayi will pen a contract with NEROCA FC which is valid till the end of this season. His deal will be sealed as soon as the medicals are done and approved”, a source close to the development has informed Khel Now. If the criteria are met, he’ll feature for NEROCA FC in the second part of this I-League campaign.
Kamo Bayi was born on August 17, 1996, in Ivory Coast, a country in West Africa. He’s purely an Indian-bred player as he started his career by tying the lace for the Kolkata-based outfit George Telegraph at the local level.
Kamo Bayi signed his first contract with George Telegraph in 2016. After spending a season with them, he shifted base to Salgaocar FC in the following season.
He came into the limelight while playing for Aizawl FC where he made a total of 20 appearances and scored five goals. He featured for Aizawl, both in the I-League and the Federation Cup.

The Northeastern-based team is having a heavy time in the ongoing I-League season. The team currently sits 11th in the points table with only Sudeva Delhi beneath them. Head coach Khogen Singh is currently under pressure and looks to resort to things as early as possible.
NEROCA have played nine matches in the ongoing I-League campaign, where they have lost six, drew one, and won just two. So far, the team has tasted success only against Kenkre FC and Sudeva Delhi.
The club’s deep lack of goal-scoring is evident in the points table. They managed to score just four goals in the ongoing season and lack a goal-scoring forward. Kamo Bayi will definitely add to the need of the hour at NEROCA!
