Ghanaian striker Derek Asamoah extends contract with English side Carlisle


Ghanaian striker Derek Asamoah has signed a new six-month contract with English lower tier side Carlisle United.

The 34-year-old sealed the six-month deal on Friday to leave him at the club until the end of the season.

Boateng was out of contract this month after signing a short-term deal at Brunton Park last summer and his decision to extend the contract has delighted the club’s coach Keith Curle.

“He can change games with the drop of a hat and I know from talking to supporters that he has become very popular,” manager Keith Curle said.

“That comes as no surprise because he has pace and a little bit of flair, as well as the ability to score and create goals.”

Asamoah scored seven goals in 24 appearances for Carlisle United this season.

He previously played for English sides Hamilton and Chester as well as French top-flight club Nice.
