Keita is an experienced player that has the ability to play as a forward, or on either wing. His skill set should transfer well to MLS and fit the Red Bulls' style of play.
INTERNATIONAL: Keita was born in Gambia, but has represented Norway at youth international levels. During his career, he has won the Polish Championship, the Norwegian Championship and the Norwegian Cup.
OUTSIDE MLS: Keita began his professional career with Stromsgodset in Norway, graduating from the youth system to the senior team in 2007. He made 125 appearances for the club between 2008 and 2014, when he moved to Poznan. He then spent time on loan with Stabaek in 2015, where he was coached by Bob Bradley. Red Bulls sporting director Denis Hamlett spent four years as an assistant on Bob Bradley's coaching staff with the Chicago Fire.
