Ghana Premier League 2015/16 top-four side, Accra Hearts of Oak, have set their focus on signing Godfred Kwadwo Asamoah of Division One side Heart of Lions.
The 19 year old 5ft 6 inches tall left back and attacking midfielder played 30 out of 30 matches for the Kpando based Lions club who will be spending year two in the Division One league after coming up short in the just ended Division one, Zone three league. He scored 3 goals, assisted with the scoring of 4 and won 5 Most Valuable Player awards in the course of the season. He is an adept left footed player, very aggressive and strong on the ball, with accurate passing skills and fairly capable in front of goal. The Phobians are hoping that his creative skills will boost their defense, midfield as well as create goal scoring opportunities upfront.
The ‘Rainbow Club’ has denied recent media reports of Inter-Allies’ free-kick goal scoring specialist Gockel Ahortor. The club’s search for a permanent coach to take over following the canning of fan favorite coach – Kenichi Yatsuhashi and the unsuccessful tenure of Sergio Traguil also continues with many fans waiting on the sidelines to see who gets the eventual nod for the job.
Newly promoted Division One side, Elmina Sharks, are looking to strengthen the squad that earned them promotion to tier-one soccer and have reportedly signed Liberty Professionals forward Felix Addo and shot stopper Francis Arthur to 3year deals. Free agent Anthony Yerful who last played for AshantiGold has also joined the Elmina based side.
Meanwhile, work on upgrading the pitch to an artificial surface at the Sharks home base - The Nduom Sports Stadium in Elmina, Cape Coast - has commenced with more promises and changes in the pipeline by the team’s owner and financier – Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom – as he looks to strengthen the various units of the team to ensure his team’s permanent stay in the elite division.
New signings and acquisitions this off-season has started slowly for most clubs but an uptick in activity is expected as teams look to prepare for the new season.
Bolga All Stars, Elmina Sharks and Accra Great Olympics are this year’s new entrants to the Premier League division.
