Seidu Bancey: Ex-Kotoko striker signs for Ethiopia’s Arba Minch City

Ghana international, Seidu Bancey has dotted the lines to a season-long deal with Arba Minch City, a club in the Ethiopian Premier League.

Bancey, 29, became a free agent after Asante Kotoko terminated his two-year contract with the side late last year.

In June 2016, Bancey was given a second chance by the Porcupines in the second half of last season but his return turned out sour. On August 19, the Ghana FA announced the suspension of the forward for the rest of the season as a result of a misconduct in Kotoko’s league match away against his former club New Edubiase United.

Seidu Bancey bagged 11 goals in the 2013/14 Ghana Premier League, but missed out on the top scorer’s award to Augustine Okrah then of Bechem United.

The lanky striker, after helping Kotoko win a both the FA Cup and league titles that season, sign moved on to with Egyptian side Smouha, before joining Al-Nabi Shayth of Lebanon, but terminated his contract after six months.

Bancey adds to the growing presence of Ghana nationals in the Ethiopian top-flight. The past few days have seen the like Kennedy Ashia, Michael Akuffo, Masalachi Baba Adam also seal their moves.

Arba Minch City FC is located in southern Ethiopia. The club finished the past season 12th on the Ethiopian league log and avoided relegation with just two points.
