Silly season catches Ghanaians abroad



January is fast approaching, meaning that players will be looking for moves as the transfer window opens in the winter. Ghana's players around the world are among the throng of rumours swirling in the silly season.

Yahaya Mohammed

A lot has been written about the former Kotoko man possibly returning to the Reds, but the 25 year old says a move to Europe would be best for him at the moment.

"I want to go back to Europe and that’s what I’m thinking about at the moment. Maybe at the end of the first round, there will be some good news to tell Ghanaians."

On his good time at club side Amidaus, Mohammed gave reasons for his fine showings. "I like this place. It’s close to home and my family and I am enjoying my football. If Kotoko come calling I’ll be ready but for now I’m concentrating on Amidaus."

A derby against Tema Youth this weekend gives the player a great chance to move into double figures in just ten games, having netted eight times in nine so far.

Amidu Salifu

He was getting cameo appearances for Fiorentina last season, which made him one to watch for the Viola. But Salifu surprisingly went on loan to Catania, where he felt more first team chances awaited him.

Months into the Serie A, the player has not had a total of an hour's gametime, leaving him distraught. But his Italian agent tells media that Amidu will wait for his chance and do well at Catania.

Fiorentina are having a fantastic season, with key players in coach Vincenzo Montella's team built around Stevan Jovetic, Luca Toni, Adam Ljajic, Manuel Pasqual and Juan Cuadrado.

This has made the Viola compact and predictable in their starting lienups, making it hard for the Ghanaian to break through even if he returned.

David Addy

David Addy could be heading to Germany this winter, according to Bild in Germany.

Currently in Portugal, Addy has played a number of games in the Portuguese Liga Sagres this season. Wolfsburg and Frankfurt are rumoured to be interested.

Now 22, Addy only joined Vitoria Guimaraes after the last transfer window and has been stable. His major flaw had been his inability to hold down a place when given the chance.

Addy played for giants FC Porto, Coimbra and Panetolikos in Greece in the past few years, having left Ghana's Wa All Stars earlier.

Bekoe Cofie

Having spent most of this season on the bench, the player should be on his way out of Lierse, possibly to Ukraine or Italy. The Belgian side have recently hired Egypt's under 23 coach Hany Ramzy.

Under the new regime, it has become clear that Bekoe will not get playing time, as was the case when Chris Janssens was in charge. The club is owned by the same company that owns Egypt's Wadi Degla.

As a result the agent of the midfielder would likely be gone by next summer, according to Calcionews 24 has reported. Coach Ramzy knows Bekoe well, having seen the player ply his trade in 2010 for Petrojet in Egypt.

Kassenu Ghandi

Being part of the team that brought glory to Ghana in the under 20 World Cup in 2009, Ghandi Kassenu thought a move to Europe was the best thing for him.

Three years on, the player is back home after being unable to hold down a place at Sweden's Degerfors IF. Ghandi has now returned to the club that made him, Liberty Professionals.

He will seek to get a place in a competitive Liberty side, who have seen consistency get them a fifth place in the Ghana Premier League after nine matches. It is likely Ghandi will begin playing in January, since he was not registered for this league season.
