The lanky midfielder prior to the suspended Ghana premier league season terminated his contract with the Reds on mutual consent after he was deemed surplus to requirement.
The former WAFA SC skipper was heavily linked to Legon Cities before the start of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League but the deal didn’t materialize since the two parties failed to reach an agreement.
