Seyfo Soley (born 16 February 1980 in Lamin, The Gambia) is a Gambian football (soccer) midfielder who previously played for Doxa Katokopias. He parted company with Preston North End in June 2007. He captains the Gambia national team.

He played for Banjul Hawks FC, K.S.C. Lokeren Oost-Vlaanderen, Al-Hilal and K.R.C. Genk, prior to signing for Preston in January 2007.

Soley made his debut for Preston North End in the 2007 fifth round of the FA Cup which Preston lost 1-3 to Manchester City. In June 2007, it was revealed that he had left the club after rejecting the club's offer of a new contract.

On 26 July 2008 Soley played as a trialist for Motherwell in the second half of their 4-0 friendly win over Bradford City.

Soley was given a trial with Norwich City in the 2008-09 season under Glenn Roeder but was not offered a permanent deal. The 30-year-old midfielder made another move on his international journey by joining the Cyprus premier tier side Apollon Limassol. The new deal, which Soley hailed as a good offer worth grapping, will take effect from January 2011 after Apollon Limassol exhausted their 17-foreign-player limit.
