Stenhousemuir have announced the capture of former Swansea City striker Botti Biabi.

Biabi has been training with the Warriors recently and has played some games behind closed doors. He has managed to convince boss David Irons that he’s good enough for the League Two outfit.

The striker was in the National League with Ebbsfleet Town earlier this season but now finds himself back in the SPFL.

A former prospect at Swansea

It wasn’t too long ago that Swansea had to win a race to sign the talented Londoner. After moving to Scotland as a teen, Biabi signed for Falkirk.

He made his Bairns debut at 18 and went on to make 32 appearances for them before the Swans swooped in and took him to Wales. It was only in January of this year he signed a new contract at the Welsh side until June 2020 following impressive displays for the U23s side.

That contract was terminated though, and after a brief stint in the National League, Biabi has dropped down to League Two less than a year after his new Swans deal.

It’s quite the coup for the Warriors though and they’ll be hoping the former Swan gets firing quick. They currently sit eighth in League Two after a 2-1 win over Brechin City, in which Biabi made his debut from the start.
