Ghana Premier League title holders and Ghana’s lone CAF Champions League representatives Medeama Sporting Club have signed former West African Football Academy (WAFA) star Daniel Adzigodi Lomotey on a permanent deal, the club has announced.
Medeama won the 2022/23 Ghana Premier league title, the first in the club’s history, and have as such attained the sole ticket with which they are representing Ghana in the current CAF Champions League campaign. The Yellow and Mauves have been on the recruitment trail to gather the best of squad to make a meaningful impact in the continental campaign, a reason for Lomotey’s capture.
The former Ghana U-20 star has signed a two-year deal with the Tarkwa based club following the expiration of his spell with Algerian giants, ES Setif.
Lomotey spent two seasons at ES Setif after leaving WAFA, and has now made a return to the domestic league to play part in Medeama’s participation in the Champions League, the domestic league as well as the FA Cup competitions.
Lomotey completed a super hat-trick for WAFA against Medeama during the 2021 league season match day 7 fixture on January 3, with WAFA beating Medeama 5-4 at Sogakope. Lomotey has since been on the wish list of the Tarkwa based side, and has finally been caught in their net.
Medeama secured a qualification to the second round of the Champions League after beating Nigeria’s Remo Stars 3-2 on penalties on Sunday following 1-0 win by each of the teams during the first and second legs.
