Ghana forward Shafiu Mumuni has popped up in Iraq.
Footy-Ghana.com can authoritatively report that the 25-year-old signed a four-month contract with Erbil Sports Club last month.
He scored his first goal for the Franso Hariri Stadium outfit on April Fool’s day when they hosted Al Najaf to a 1-1 draw in the Iraqi Premier League.

Shafiu left Tunisian side US Monastir in January this year, a couple of months after joining them on a two-year deal.
The former AshantiGold captain was linked to Algerian side ES Setif while two-time FA Cup winners Medeama SC were the only Ghanaian club to make an approach to sign him.
But Shafiu chose to satisfy his desire to play abroad by settling for the short deal with the 12th-placed four-time Iraqi Premier League winners.
Shafiu Mumuni would be hoping to score again when Erbil SC visit Naft Maysan in a match-day 27 fixture on Thursday, April 8.
