Ghanaian defender Gideon Baah has sealed a two-year contract with Finnish side Honka after impressing on a loan stint.
The left-back completes the move from Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko after spending three month on a free loan to Honka.
He was left out in the cold by coach Mas-Ud Didi Dramani before he opted to travel to Finland to seal the loan deal.
The player, who was originally signed on a season-long loan in March, made an instant impact leading to a long term contract with the Finnish side.
“I am very happy to have signed a two-year contract with FC Honka because I have been working really hard for it,” the speedy left-back said on his official website.
“I have been here for about 4 months now and have had a regular spot in the team. I feel more relaxed since I signed and can concentrate on my game. When your career is in limbo it can be quite unsettling.
“I hope my fans in Ghana understand my decision and will pray for me and support me as I strive to move forward.”
Baah shot to fame in a TV soccer reality show in Ghana.
He had the chance to move to England to tour the facilities at Chelsea and other clubs before joining the Porcupine Warriors.
