Former Black Stars defender Lee Addy has revealed that he is looking for a return to the Ghana Premier League.

The 30-year-old was recently evacuated from Ethiopia due to the coronavirus pandemic and is now looking at reviving his career in his home country, having last played in Ghana for Berekum Chelsea more than a decade ago.

Addy, who was part of Ghana’s 2010 World Cup and 2010 & 2012 Africa Cup of Nations squads, has also played in Lebanon, Serbia, China, Croatia and Zambia in a nomadic club career.

“I am talking to three clubs Kotoko, Ashanti Gold and Hearts of Oak and we hope to come to a conclusion soon,” Addy told Max FM.

“Hearts and Kotoko are like Barcelona and Real Madrid but I also respect AshGold very well, so any of them that gives me a good offer I will gladly accept.

“I am a footballer and will take any offer which is good for me, it could be in Africa or Europe and I will embrace the offer.”

He added, “I had played the World Cup in 2010, won the best defender in Ghana twice but when I got to Red Star Belgrade [in 2010] I was told I am not ready to play and needed more time.

“My first game was a derby and I was not invited to camp but later I was called to come and play.

“That first game I played I earned a contract in China because I played very well.”
