Aduana Stars midfielder Noah Martey has revealed that he turned down an opportunity to have a trial with Portuguese side Vitoria SC before joining the Dormaa-based club.
The 20-year-old joined Aduana from Bechem United in a two-year deal in November after his contract expired.
“It is true I had an invite from Vitória S.C in July 2015, but I didn’t honour the invitation and I don’t regret it,” Martey told Goal.
“The club needed me badly so they sent another invite in November but I preferred to join Aduana Stars on permanent deal after several thoughts.
“I believe my decision to join Aduana than going on trial is the best. I believe in myself as a good player and I think Aduana will provide me the best of opportunities to get good offers in the future,” he added.
Martey netted 10 goals last season in the Ghana Premier League to help Bechem escape relegation.
