Sirens FC have completed the signing of nine players from Ghana side Medeama.
The transfer move is quite unprecedented in Maltese football since the St Paul’s Bay side are acquiring the services of nine players from the Ghana champions.
The two clubs did not disclose transfer details. According to new rules introduced this season by the Malta Premier League, top-flight clubs in Malta can sign up to 16 foreign players and register a maximum of 14. The remaining two can be sent out on loan.
In a statement, Medeama said that defenders Daniel Opoku and Moro Muktar, midfielders Kwasi Donsu and Prosper Owusu Boakye, winger Akadom Mohammed Hafiz and forwards Charles Agyemang, Frank Boateng, Joshua Agyemang and Bismark Asare have all agreed professional contracts with the Maltese Premier League side.
“We are delighted to announce the transfer of nine of our players to Maltese Premier League side Sirens FC,” the Ghana champions said in a statement.
“The 9 players have signed professional contracts with the side to begin their European adventures.
“Midfielders Kwasi Donsu and Prosper Owusu Boakye as well as forwards Charles Agyemang, Frank Boateng, Joshua Agyemang, Bismark Asare and defenders Daniel Opoku and Moro Muktar will join the Maltese side this week after completing formalities.
“Winger Akadom Mohammed Hafiz completes the list of players leaving the club for Europe.”
All the players formed part of the Medeama FC team that won the 2022-23 Ghana Premier League title with a five-point margin – the first league title in the club’s history.
Medeama FC said that Kwasi Donsu, Frank Boateng and Joshua Agyemang have signed a one-year loan deal while the remaining six players have put pen to paper on a permanent contract.
Joshua Agyemang will join his team-mates at Sirens FC after the return leg of the CAF Champions League match against Remo Stars FC in Nigeria on Sunday.
Donsu, Prosper Boakye, Joshua Agyemang, Moro Muktar, Daniel Opoku and Moro Muktar played an influential role in our 2022-23 Ghana Premier League triumph last season.
The new signings are already in Malta and on Wednesday paid a courtesy visit to Ghana’s ambassador to Malta, Barbara Akuokor Benisa. Sirens FC have yet to comment on the transfer.
