Twenty-two year-old striker Mani Dieseruvwe played against us three times last season but will wear Salford City colours during the 2017-2018 campaign - courtesy of our media department there's an interview with Mani here).
The six-foot-five front-man started out with Sheffield Wednesday's academy, signing a professional contract with the Owls during the summer of 2013. Loan spells with then Conference National Hyde and Football League outfits Fleetwood Town and Chesterfield followed.
The last of these loan spells led to a permanent deal and Mani went on to play almost thirty first team games during his time at the Proact Stadium.
Another loan move followed, this time to Mansfield Town and during the summer of 2016 he moved to National League North Kidderminster Harriers. The Leeds born striker played for Harriers when they inflicted Salford's first defeat of the 2016-2017 season and was also in the side that lost the return match 3-0 at Moor Lane. Mani finished the campaign on loan to Boston United and lined up against the Ammies again as his new club recorded a 2-0 win at York Street.
Despite his height Mani started out as a midfielder but was increasingly used as a striker and can now operate as a traditional number 9 or in a deeper role. Strong, good in the air and mobile he is a great addition to Salford's squad and we wish him the best of luck for his time with us at Moor Lane.
