Swedish top-flight side [unnamed club] has agreed on a 3-year pre-contract with Accra Hearts of Oak striker Kwadwo Obeng Junior, Ghanasportspage.com can exclusively confirm.
According to our deep-throat source, Obeng, 23, has signed a three-year deal with a club in the Swedish top flight and is expected to leave Hearts of Oak two months later. His contract with the club will come to an end in May 2023.
Abeng Jenior will join an unnamed Swedish Premier League club from next season until 2026. Ghana’s No.1 website will follow up with the contract details soon.
Obeng Junior joined the Rainbows in April 2018 from Division One League side Nea Salamina Ghana (now Wamanfo Mighty Royals FC) after helping the club to their highest finish in the FA Cup before losing to Asante Kotoko in the quarter-final in 2017.
Before joining Hearts of Oak, Obeng Junior was one of the most highly-rated youngsters in the Division One League. He was one of the best strikers that season, scoring thirteen league goals and three goals in the Ghana FA Cup in 2017 including goals against Steadfast FC in the round of 16 and Asante Kotoko in the last eight.
In 2020, the striker signed a three-year contract extension with Hearts of Oak. He ended the 2020/21 season with eleven goals in twenty-five matches to end as the club’s top scorer in all competitions with ten of those goals coming in the league.
After playing a key role in setting up the Rainbows to win the Premier League and the FA Cup, his tallies dropped but he remained a highly regarded member of the squad.
He has, however, faced plenty of criticism following his scoring drought. He has been verbally abused and unfairly criticised by the fans of the club. With this, the player has decided to continue his football career in Europe.
His importance to Slavko Matic’s side was demonstrated on week 14 when he scored the only goal against Medeama SC to hand the Phobians a historic win in Tarkwa – their first victory at the Akoon Park since 2016.
The 23-year-old has scored three goals for the Phobians this season in their quest to win their 22nd GPL title.
