Ghana international, Samuel Inkoom, has signed a deal to with Bulgarian topflight side, FC Dunav Ruse.

Inkoom, who was part of Ghana’s 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup-winning team in Egypt, was returning to regular football after serving a year's suspension from FIFA following a financial dispute with his former agent.

The right full back is believed to have signed a half-season deal with the Bulgarian side as he returns to play in the league he previously featured while playing for rivals Vereya FC in the 2016/17 season.

The 29-year-old would become the second Ghanaian to play for the club having earlier recruited Tema Youth midfielder, Derrick Mensah.

Although Inkoom reportedly received offers from clubs in France, the defender opted to return to the South eastern European side to re-launch his nomadic career that has seen him play for nine different clubs in the last decade.

Dunav Ruse are among four other clubs fighting to escape relegation as they currently occupy the 12th spot with 15 points on the 14-club competition after 20 games and his services would be needed to help save them from relegation.
