Ghana Premier League newcomers, Accra Lions FC have completed the signing of UK-based Ghanaian midfielder Oscar Boateng.

The club last season excelled in the National Division One League and as a result gained promotion to play in the top-flight league this season.

“Last but not least, ALFC has the pleasure to welcome Oscar Boateng.

“The 18-year-old defensive midfielder joins us as a free agent from the United Kingdom,” Accra Lions have announced in a statement on their Twitter page.

Speaking on the latest signing, Paul Goodrich who is head of scouting at Accra Lions said, “Oscar’s playing style is visibly British. He will definitely increase the versatility of our game.”

The game is scheduled to kick-off at 18:00GMT.
