The transfer of nine players by Ghana Premier League champions, Medeama SC to Maltese club, Sirens FC has raised numerous eyebrows in Ghana.
The Mauve and Yellow clinched the Ghana Premier League trophy last term which qualified them for the 2023/24 CAF Champions League.
Their debut campaign started at the Cape Coast Stadium where they managed a 1-0 win over Nigeria club, Remo Stars with the reverse fixture billed for the Ikene Stadium in Nigeria on Sunday, August 27.
Out of the nine players, Kwasi Donsu is probably the key player among them with the remaining enjoying little to no minutes with the two time FA Cup winners.
Administrative manager of Hohoe United, Yussif Uthman says, Medeama SC did the right thing by transferring 9 players abroad.
“I think it is a good thing for Medeama to have that kind of partnership where a chunk of their players can also go and further develop their talent,’ Yussif Uthman told Radio Gold Sports.
“Someone will say Malta but let’s not forget that the Maltese league is one of the growing leagues, they have a number of Ghanaian players there who have spoken highly about the league.
“It is going to be a very good adventure and when you look at the players who have been allowed to leave, a chunk of them are not the players who maybe necessarily be needed by Medeama this season.
“I think it makes sense because it takes the pressure off the accounting books of Medeama and then secondly iy allows the players to have o to further improve their skill and the development in Europe.” Yussif Alhassan Uthman told Radio Gold Sports.
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.
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.
