Ghana international James Akaminko has extended his contract at Azam FC for an additional two years.
The 27-year-old combative midfielder signed an initial two-year contract with the Tanzania Premier League outfit in July 2022 after leaving Ghana’s Great Olympics on a free transfer. The deal was set to expire in 2024.
However, following a productive debut campaign in which big boys Simba SC indicated an interest in signing the Akaminko, Azam moved fast to prolong their starman’s stay with better terms in a new contract.
On Thursday, June 22, 2023, the club formally announced the extension.
“Midfielder, James Akaminko, has extended a new two-year contract to remain in our club. Thus, he is still very much present in the outskirts of Azam Complex until the year 2026,” a club statement read.
