Dreams FC forward, Sharani Zuberu has signed a one-year deal to join Czech side, AC Sparta Prague.

The deal was signed on Thursday, August 9 with an option for renewal for another three years.

A statement by the Ghana Premier League side read: “Dreams Football Club is delighted to announce that it has reached an agreement with AC Sparta Prague over the transfer of Zuberu Sharani.”

“Representatives of both clubs agreed and signed the agreement on Thursday, August 9, 2018 in Prague with Executive Chairman and President Kurt E.S. Okraku and Jiji Mohammed respectively signing on behalf of Dreams FC.”

Zuberu graduated from the club’s youth team, Still Believe FC, to become an important member of the Premier League team.

He played a key role in Dreams FC’s return to the Premiership and was instrumental in their success in the season-opening GHALCA G8 tournament.

Meanwhile, former captain of Dreams FC, Leonard Owusu has expressed satisfaction at the reception given him by his new club, FC Ashdod.

The skillful midfielder moved to the Israeli outfit earlier this month on a one-year loan deal with an option of a three-year permanent deal.

In an interview with the club’s website, an elated Owusu commended the officials of Ashdod for the warm reception accorded him.

“The reception has been very good. They are like a family here and they have received me well so I am not afraid to go speak to anyone. They have all been good to me since I arrived.”

“It has been fantastic and great here. The atmosphere and everything around is very good and I am looking forward to the new season,” he said.

“I am thankful for the support my fans have given me up till now and I implore them to still pray and support me.”

Owusu played a major role in Dreams FC’s surge to the top flight of Ghana football as he led the team to qualify twice to the Premier League.
