Former Ghana international goalkeeper Stephen Adams has signed for Ghana Premier League Great Olympics in this January transfer window.
The 30-year-old, who was a member of Ghana’s squad at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, joins Olympics on a one-year contract, and insists that being close to his family was a key deciding factor in his decision.
Adams famously helped Aduana Stars win the Ghanaian championship in 2010 and was named the league’s best goalkeeper for that season.
He will be hoping to help Olympics make a quick improvement, with the promoted side having lost both of their two opening Ghana Premier League matches in the new 2019/20 season.
“I just finished signing the deal. It’s just one season because I want to keep myself active,” Adams told Zylofon FM, as quoted by Ghana Soccernet.
“I moved to Olympics to get close to my family. I’ve been away from my family for so long because I was living [in] Dormaa even when I was playing in the league so when the opportunity came to get close to my family I didn’t hesitate.
“I joined the league to showcase my talent to Ghanaians once again. I want to show my fans that I’m still in top shape. I should have signed long ago but because we were playing inter-sites gala I put it on hold.
“I watched their [Great Olympics] game against Aduana and I was impressed with their play. They have experienced players so I’m praying we’ll be able to perform well this season.”
