Jai wants to join cousin in England
Jai Quitongo is poised to leave Dumbarton after setting his sights on a move to England.
The jet-heeled striker, and brother of Sons’ Young Player of the Year Rico, joined Jim Duffy’s men in January on a short-term deal from Iranian side Machine Sazi . He played six times, scoring once against Forfar Athletic in March on his return from an injuryplagued two seasons.
Now he’s hoping to rediscover the form that attracted the likes of Newcastle United during his early days at Morton – by moving in with cousin, Manchester United starlet Angel Gomes (right).
Jai said:“This is a weird time for every footballer as we’ve never experienced anything like this before.
“It allows you to take stock of things, assess how you’ve done and what you want to do.
“I’ve always wanted to move to England and now, with all the uncertainty, it’s the right time.
“It will help to have Angel’s support but whatever I do, I will do it on my own. What I see from him is the way he has made the most of his opportunity. Whenever I go to watch him play and see the life he lives, then I see the kind of life I want.
“What he has achieved at such a young age is inspiring to the family.
“I’m obviously not going to play at a club like Manchester United but it’s an exciting challenge for me in a new environment.”
