Inkoom joins Basel on June 16

Ghana starlet Samuel Inkoom will join Swiss side FC Basel next month after completing a four-year deal last week.

The 19-year-old passed his medical and put pen-to-paper but wants to join the club after the Black Stars 2010 joint Nations Cup/World Cup qualifier against Mali on 06 June.

“I passed every test and in the end they told me I have exceeded their expectation.I had to return back home to continue playing for Kotoko until I leave on 16 June,” Inkoom is quoted in the Kotoko Express newspaper.

“I could have packed my things and moved immediately to Switzerland but because of national assignments I have to wait a while.”

The right-back won the African Youth Championship and also won a silver medal at the maiden edition of the CHAN tournament in La Cote D’Ivoire.
