Ghana international Edmund Addo has completed a transfer to FK Spartak Subotica, the Serbian SuperLiga club announced Tuesday.
Arriving from Moldovan champions FC Sheriff Tiraspol, the 22-year-old defensive midfielder signed a two-and-a-half-year contract – thus keeping him at the club until the summer of 2025.
Slowed down by injury and a botched move to Red Star Belgrade last summer, Addo has not played a game in the last 6 months.
Commenting on the deal, Spartak Subotica club president Nikola Simović said: “Addo is a huge reinforcement for our club and I believe that during the preparations he will fully fit into the team and show all his quality.
“Even though he hasn’t played for the last 6 months, I’m sure he’ll get fit soon and provide good games. Very pleased that we have managed to bring a player who has a 12 Champions League game win against Real in Madrid and is a Ghanaian A team, very young and has huge potential.
“Bringing such a player is also confirmation of what I said at the beginning of the preparation – Spartak is a very financially stable club, first of all thanks to our new vice president and co-financier Gaga Antonijevic. The goal of Spartak in the rest of the season is to fight for a place leading to the playoffs, with the commitment to secure survival in the league as early as possible, and I believe that Addo will help us achieve our goals.”
Addo also expressed satisfication with the reception to the club:
“I have been made a very welcome from everyone at the club and I’m glad to be here.”
“I haven’t had a chance to train with the boys yet, but I’ve checked online the details from the last few games. I think Spartak has quality footballers, so I came to help them.
“I know what the ambitions of the club are and I hope we can create a good atmosphere and together achieve the goals set,” he added.
FK Spartak Subotica are currently 11th in the 2022/23 Serbian SuperLiga standings with 18 points from 19 games. They host Újpest in their first home game of the year on Friday, January 13.
