Seejou King (born 19 April 1992) is a Danish footballer of Gambian descent. He plays as a left back for C.D. Aves.

Early life[edit]

Seejou King was born in Hvidovre, Denmark. He played under-17 football with Hvidovre IF, before being picked up by F.C. Nordsjælland.[1]

Senior career[edit]

F.C. Nordsjælland[edit]

At the start of the 2011-12 season, F.C. Nordsjælland were without a left full back, after selling Pierre Bengtsson to Danish Superliga champions F.C. Copenhagen in the previous winter and Bryan Oviedo's loan spell coming to an end, King was promoted to first team.[2]

On 16 July 2011, he made his debut for Nordsjælland in a 2-0 loss to OB, the opening match of the new season, picking up his first yellow card for a foul on Andreas Johansson.[3] Making 5 appearances for the first team in the Danish Superliga, with the arrival of Danish international Patrick Mtiliga, King had been pushed back down the pecking order.

Sporting Clube de Portugal[edit]

At the end of the 2012-2013 season January transfer window, F.C. Nordsjælland confirmed that Sporting B, the reserve-team of Sporting Clube de Portugal, had signed King on loan for the remainder of the season. King made his debut for Sporting B on 10 February 2013 in a game against Arouca. On 28 June 2013, Sporting finally decided to keep King, penning down a deal until 2016.
