Irish club Ballymena United have completed the signing of promising New Edubiase United striker Abdul Basit Umar, the club has announced.
Basit signed a year loan deal with the Northern Ireland Football League side with an option to buy and he’s expected to sharpen the side’s attack.
The 18-year old had been signed and cleared on the transfer deadline date but due to prolonged processes of his work permit, the club only confirmed the deal today.
The Ghana U20 striker guided the Black Satellites to qualify for the upcoming U20 AFCON after leading the team to beat Algeria and Benin.
With his strength and powerful drives and desire for goals, Basit looks promising with his side.
Ballymena are currently on 4th position on the NIFL and Basit is expected to guide them to the top.
