The Wonder Club added the signatures of Jacob Kingston and Rodney Appiah during the just-ended transfer window as they look to improve on the team’s quest to finish in the top four.

Jacob and Rodney’s signing confirms a Graphic Sports story which stated that the duo were on the verge of joining Olympics after training with them.

The 23-year-old Jacob and Rodney, 19, were transferred from the second-division outfit KingStep FC, a club owned by their fathers.

Quarshie explained that the two players have distinguished themselves and were ready to take on the Premier League in the second half of the season.

“It is a good step in their career because they will have the opportunity to play in the Ghanaian top flight,” said Quarshie.

“I know they will excel in the top flight and I wish them the very best in their future endeavours. They have really distinguished themselves in the period that they have been here.”

Olympics finished second in the first half of the season following series of stellar performances which saw wins over giants Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.

Meanwhile, Inter Allies have signed three players namely, Anokye Mensah, Gockel Ahontor and Andy Okpe for the rest of the season with Mohammed Baki set to feature for Dreams FC in the second round of the campaign.
