Black Stars striker Prince Tagoe seals six-month loan to Al Ettifaq
Ghana striker Prince Tagoe has completed his return to Al Ettifaq by signing a six-month loan deal, MTNFootball.com can exclusively reveal.
Tagoe joins the Saudi Premier League side from Turkish top-flight side Bursaspor where he failed to impress since moving there in the August 2011.
He managed to make only 11 appearances and scored one goal.
Tagoe will join the Dammam-based side in Dubai where the team will be embarking on a 12-day training tour.
The Ghana international will get the opportunity to play in four friendly matches which includes Al Wasl and Ahli.
The 26-year-old played for Ettifaq between 2007 and 2009 before leaving for German Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenheim in June 2009.
Tagoe’s inactivity this term cost him a place in Ghana’s squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
He played a bit-part role at the 2012 Nations Cup in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea where the Black Stars finished fourth.
Al Ettifaq’s next league match will be against Al Hilal on 25 January at home.
