Osei's Legia move on hold

15 years ago

Ransford Osei could see out the rest of the Ghana season with Kessben FC despite agreeing a deal to join Legia Warsaw on loan in February.

Kessben FC officials have made a request to Legia for the player to carry on in with his career in Ghana in a move that could effectively end the prospect of the junior international playing his football in Poland.

Osei agreed a deal with Legia in February to join them on loan until May 31, 2008 pending a proposed move to Manchester City but he has struggled for work permit with his request still at the Polish Embassy in Nigeria.

Now officials of his Kumasi-based club say with the days running out it will be in the interest of all three parties including the player to stay on and play in the domestic league until the season ends.

“We are half way through April already and the work permit has still not arrived. Even if it came in now Ransford will not get to play that much in Poland whereas if he stays he can help our push for a good finish and help himself by staying in shape,” Fred Acheampong, communications director of Kessben told

Osei is regarded as one of Ghana’s best prospects after he finished Osei was top scorer of the Ghana side that reached the semifinals of the 2007 World Under-17 championships in South Korea with six goals.
