Kasali Olayinka Olatunda Casal (born 21 October 1987 in London) is a professional footballer who plays as a left back or left winger. He is a dual citizen of United Kingdom and Nigeria.


Raised in the North West area of London, Casal joined the Fulham youth academy in 2003 at the age of 16 and earned a spot on the full team reserve side two years later.[2] Casal had been the leading scorer for Fulham's reserve team for the 2005–06 season.[3]

In March 2007 D.C. United signed Casal to a senior contract.[3] In July he was released from the club.[4] Then he signed for Dutch club Cambuur Leeuwarden.

On 6 August 2008, Casal signed a two-year deal with Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee, after a successful trial.[5] He made his debut for Swindon against Tranmere Rovers on the opening day of the 2008–09 season. He left Swindon by mutual consent on 12 January 2010.[6]

On 13 January 2010 CFR Cluj signed the former Nigerian Swindon Town F.C. left-back.[7] He was injured in the first friendly match played in Antalya and later the leadership of CFR Cluj dropped him from the squad.[8] In February he went on loan to Gaz Metan Mediaş,[9] but quickly in early March returned to Cluj and was not allowed to train with the team.[10]

Personal life

In his youth he was an athlete and was on a 4x100 relay team that as of 5 September 1999 holds the British U-13 record (50.32 seconds).[11]
