Former Inter Allies striker Frederick Boateng has joined newly promoted Ethiopian Premier League side Welwalo Adigrat University FC.
He became a free agent after he was deemed not in the plans of now sacked coach Prince Owusu prior to the second round of the ongoing 2016/17 Ghana Premier League.
Frederick Boateng, who was Inter Allies’ top scorer in the 2015/16 season with nine goals, this week, signed a one-year deal with ‘The Yellows’ of Ethiopian football.
Aside the 23-year-old forward, Welwalo also secured a similar deal with another Ghanaian midfielder Abdul Rahman Fasuni from Division One League outfit, Steadfast FC.
Meanwhile, former Wa All Stars player Atia Sumaila failed to impress on trials hence no deal with the Ethiopian League new boys.
The presence of Ghanaian players in the Ethiopian top division continues to shoot up. Over the past few weeks, as many as eight players – Kennedy Ashia, Latif Mohammed, Michael Annan (Sidama Bunna), Michael Akuffo, Masalachi Baba Adam (Mekelle Ketema) and Seidu Bancey (Abra Minch) have secured deals to play in the new season set to start mid-October.
There were only three Ghanaian players – Adamu Mohammed (Woldia), Kweku Andoh (Dedebit) and Gabriel Jetro (Hawassa City) in the Ethiopian Premier League the previous season.
Footy-Ghana.com sources indicate there are a number of other Ghanaian players currently chasing deals with some clubs.
