Berrian pens a deal with Ea Lla Koto

Berrian, who is 18, is the vice captain of the Liberian Under-20 national team and has three caps for the senior national team.

"Herron is now an official player for Free State Stars after signing a two-year contract with the team," the player's agent, Godwin Emmanuel of Gzedsports Management, confirms.

"As I speak to you now all the paperwork regarding his transfer is sorted and he will be wearing jersey no. 33."

Berrian is already touted as an excellent replacement for Edward Manqele, who joined Mamelodi Sundowns this season.

However, when asked whether he could emulate Manqele, the Liberian international would not commit himself: "I don't want to put unecessary pressure on myself, but all I want to tell you is that  'impossible is nothing'.

"I am glad to have joined such an ambitious club with good players and a great technical staff, who have been very supportive since I arrived in South Africa."
