FREE AGENT: Lawrence Lartey arrives to finalize Ajax Cape Town move

Ghanaian defender, Lawrence Lartey, has landed in South Africa ahead of a possible move to Ajax Cape Town, two years after they first showed an interest in him.

Lartey, 22, is currently out of contract with League champions AshantiGold SC in Ghana, and the Urban Warriors have failed in all of their previous attempts to persuade the club to sell the versatile player to them in the past.

However, it now appears that a deal is on the verge of happening, with the player making a trip to Cape Town, potentially to finalise a deal after it was agreed in principle before his arrival.

The defender will not be able to be registered by Ajax until the January transfer window opens if a deal is finalised, however the club can start setting the wheels in motion with regards to work permits etc.

Lartey made the Ghanaian Premier League ‘Team of the Season’ last year for his exploits in the league, and Ajax are hoping to add his talents to their side in the near future.
