Former Crystal Palace striker Reise Allassani has secured a move back into the Football League – with his move to Coventry City due to be confirmed tomorrow.
The 22-year-old has battled back from a major knee injury to star for Dulwich Hamlet in the Isthmian League Premier Division last season.
And despite the South London club winning promotion to National League South, it was always expected that Allassani would be on the move this summer.
Dulwich resisted bids for the young attacker in the January window and that decision paid off as they won their play-off final.
Allassani has agreed a two-year deal with Coventry City, with the option of another 12 months. He was in the crowd for their League Two play-off final win at Wembley last weekend.
Hamlet are understood to have at have a few incoming deals in place but there is not likely to be an announcement on those this week.
