In a mid-season transfer move, Ghanaian winger Augustine Okrah has commenced training with Tanzanian football giants, Young Africans, popularly known as Yanga, as reported by Ghana Soccernet.
The talented attacker’s return to Tanzanian football follows a challenging stint with Simba FC two years ago, and his move from Bechem United is poised to make waves in the country’s topflight league.
Augustine Okrah, a former Asante Kotoko striker, is a familiar face in the Ghana Premier League, where he clinched the top goal scorer award in the 2013/2014 season, boasting an impressive tally of 16 goals. His football journey spans various clubs, including BK Hacken, FC Smouha, Al Hilal, and Al Merrikh in Sudan.
Currently making headlines in the ongoing Ghana Premier League, the ex-Bechem forward has jointly secured the top scorer position with 9 goals from 17 games.
Having joined Young Africans, Okrah is set to share the field with another Ghanaian talent, striker Hafiz Konkoni, who also brings his experience from Bechem United. The combination of Okrah’s skill and experience, coupled with Konkoni’s striking prowess, adds a dynamic dimension to Yanga’s squad. While the financial details of the deal remain undisclosed, Transfermarkt estimates the player’s current market value at €150,000.
The training sessions with Young Africans mark a new chapter in Augustine Okrah’s career, as he aims to make a significant impact on the Tanzanian football scene. With his proven goal-scoring abilities and a wealth of experience, Okrah’s addition to the Yanga lineup is anticipated to enhance the team’s offensive capabilities and contribute to their success in the Tanzanian topflight league.
Football enthusiasts eagerly await Okrah’s debut in the Yanga colors, anticipating an exciting partnership with Konkoni that could propel the team to new heights in the league.
