Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom has sealed a long-awaited loan move to Greek side Platanias FC, GHANAsoccernet.com can confirm.

The 24-year-old sealed the move on Monday and joins from Ukrainian club FC Dnipro as he looks to secure regular club football to aid his bid of playing for Ghana at the 2014 World Cup in June.

Inkoom has endured almost two-years of being frozen out from the Dnipro first team over a rift with manager Juande Ramos.

The news comes as a big relief to the player and several Ghanaian football fans who have been desperate to see the 2009 U20 World Cup winner back in regular first team action for his club.

The former FC Basel man shared his profound delight at his move which will hopefully boost his chances of making coach Akwasi Appiah’s squad for the World Cup.

“I am so happy and relieved,” the 24-year-old told Goal after sealing the move.

“It’s a dream come through. I am ready to give off my best to prepare me for the months ahead.”

Inkoom who spent the second half of last season at French club Bastia however insists making the World Cup squad for Ghana is not his immediate focus.

“Let me focus on club duties first and after we can talk about the World Cup.

“I am most grateful to God for this opportunity. I am going to make good use of it,” he added.

Inkoom joins Platanias who are currently 14th in the Greek top flight – four points adrift the drop zone.

    the guy was closed to go to England while playing in switzerland, and look now… Shame

    • Jaja says:

      It’s a shame indeed, that now we suddenly have to be happy that he found a Greek club that’s unknown to many. He was playing CL in Basel, I remember he even scored! He should have acted a long time ago, and not just now have a short-term fix with the WC around the corner. This is called short-sightedness.

    Wish you all the best, bro!

    This guy is crap, is he not the one that was sucking a pacifier during the Egypt vs Ghana final in Angola? My friend come back to Kumasi and eat Kenke. Sha!

    • Zambia Soccerman says:

      No disrespect to Ghana football and the players, but this guy’s off the field seem to have cost him dear, hopefully he learns and recover as he is still young.

    • CEREBRAL says:

      It was Adiyiah who was sucking the pacifier! He was making a sarcastic joke referencing boredom. Remember Adiyiah won the Golden Boot Award for the U20 WC in 2009. We should get used to all the antics that footballers use to get attention, publicity and branding. Look at how some of them suck their thumb when they score goals, slide on the pitch, pretend making phone calls or dance….its all icing on the cake….don’t forget the outrageous haircuts, they are all rituals for identity!

  4. Zambia Soccerman says:

    Where is Selfmad? Stopby at Zamfoot and let us know you are still alive my friend.

    That coach juan Ramos is digging his own grave. You should see what happened to Andre Villas Boas at Tottenham. He tried to freeze Adebayor the same way Ramos did to Inkoom. He got himself fired in the long run. These Latino coaches are very immature. They love to bear down heavily on African players, and when they resist they are motivated by their hatred and racism to punish them undeservingly. Sulley Muntari went through the same shit at Inter Milan and Emmanuel Frimpong is going through the same situation with Arsene Wenga with Arsenal. Wenger tried to get Frimpong to play for England. When he resisted, he put him in the deep freezer. God go punish all of them one after the other. Andre Villas Boas has already received his punishment.

I’ll chose Godfred siaka ahead of this dude, this is a a guy who can’t even give one decent crossing.I keep on saying that Akaminko and wakaso are the players to solve the problem we’ve at defence. 1.kwarasey 2.Akaminko 3.wakaso 4.jonathan mensah 5.Boye 6.Essien 7.K.Asamoah 8 . Sulley 9.Gyan 10.kp Boateng 11. Dede (bench) Opare,david addy, vorsah, sumaila (defenders) Badu, ,atsu, rabiu, adomah (midfielders) )Jordan, yiadom, warris (strikers) for the keeping department the two slot is open. I can justify the exclusion of afful and inkoom both players aren’t wc material
