WEYMOUTH have finally captured triallists Omar Mussa and Taofiq Olomowewe on permanent deals.

Both deals have been financed by the Wessex Fantasy Football scheme overseen by chairman Ian White.

The deals are subject to FA approval ahead of the National League opener against Boreham Wood on Saturday, August 21 (3pm).

Ex-Dover midfielder Mussa, 20, has eight previous National League games under his belt and is a Belgium under-18 international.

Mussa also has a solitary appearance in League One for Walsall in the 2018/19 season.

He has worn the number eight shirt for Weymouth throughout pre-season, impressing with his box-to-box play and ability to control the midfield.

Olomowewe, meanwhile, staked his claim for a deal this season thanks to a string of assured displays in defence.

Wearing the number 20 shirt during pre-season, Olomowewe has been a vocal, organised leader at centre-back.

The 24-year-old former Burnley under-23 and Wealdstone defender has a wealth of National League South (NLS) experience under his belt.

Among his previous clubs at NLS level are Hungerford, Chelmsford, Hemel Hempstead and Braintree.

The duo are the 18th and 19th signings made this summer by manager Brian Stock, who has publicly voiced his intention to limit the Terras' squad to 20 players.

Both players could face Chelsea on Sunday in their first game since signing.
