Just two days after announcing the departure of defender and captain Frankie Sanfilippo, the RailHawks revealed a very welcome retention: Striker Hamed Diallo, one of the most efficient scorers in the league last year, has signed on for his first full season with the squad.

Contract details were not released, and the deal awaits USL and USSF [United States Soccer Federation] approval. [UPDATE 3:01 p.m.: RailHawks management tells us it's a one-year deal, but offer no details on salary, per team policy.]

Diallo, a native of Ivory Coast and past member of its national team, joined the RailHawks last July in a three-team deal involving Portland and Rochester. Despite appearing in only 16 games for the Cary side, he finished among the league leaders in goals (7) and points (17), and was named to the USL-1 team of the week three times. The final week of the season, he was named player of the week.
