Halmstads BK confirm out-of-contract Sadat Karim departure

Ghana striker Sadat Karim has left Swedish top-flight returnees Halmstads BK after four seasons.

The 31-year-old – who joined from Landskrona BoiS in January 2019 – bagged 24 goals and 21 assists in 126 appearances during this spell.

On Thursday, Halmstad confirmed that Karim is leaving the club after his contract expired at the turn of the year.

The Allsvenskan newcomers have decided they can do without the former Hearts of Oak after both parties failed to agree on contract extension terms.

Moreover, Halmstads feel they are well-stocked in the striking department having recently signed compatriot Naeem Mohammed and Viktor Granath from Västerås SK in addition to Alexander Johansson and Villiam Dahlström who helped them in their promotion push.

“We are in a position where we have four established forwards plus Lorent Mehmeti (talent from the academy) so we have quite a good order on the forward side.

“Sadat is a good, strong target player and has qualities that are good, but we have discussed back and forth and it all came down to this,” HBK’s manager Magnus Haglund told Hallandsposten.

Last season, Sadat Karim scored five goals and provided four assists in 30 appearances.
