Ghana attacker Samuel Owusu has left Serbian side FK Čukarički for a shock move to Al-Fayha FC in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“The Board of Directors of Al-Fayha Club, chaired by Mr. Abdullah bin Ahmed Abanami, has completed the signing procedures with Ghanaian international Samuel Owusu for three seasons coming from Serbian club Čukarički Stankom,” read an official announcement on the Saudi side’s website.
It added: “The player arrived on Monday in Saudi Arabia after he successfully passed the medical tests conducted by one of the specialized medical clinics in Dubai.
“The signing ceremony took place this evening at the press conference hall at the club’s headquarters in the presence of CEO Othman Al-Shunaifi.”
Owusu, the 23-year-old left-sided player, thrives as a right-winger. He left Ghanaian second-tier club Vision FC to start his professional career with FK Radnik Surdulica in 2014, spent the 2016/17 season at Turkish club Gençlerbirliği before cutting short his two-year contract for a return to the Serbian league with Čukarički the following summer.
Beginning his three-year contract, Owusu scored four times in 30 games during the 2017/18 Serbian SuperLiga. Last season, he bagged seven goals in 32 appearances and helped the club earn a spot in Uefa competitions after three years. That form saw him also receive his first-ever international call-up to the senior national team of Ghana in May and went on to star at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations held in Egypt.
