Former Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe joins Hasaacas

The former Porcupine Warriors star has joined Hasaacas after a botched move to the Phobians camp ahead of the new season.

Former Ghana Premier League top scorer Eric Kwabena Bekoe has signed a one-year deal with Sekondi Hasaacas on transfer deadline day.

The 29-year-old has been without a club for almost two seasons after picking up a troublesome knee injury but was earlier linked to giants Hearts of Oak.

However, the Phobians, after reaching an advanced stage in the negotiations with his counsel, opted to sign 2012 league top scorer Samuel Yeboah from Heart of Lions ahead of Bokoe. 

Hasaacas coach Yusif Basigi is reported to be a long time admirer of the striker and quickly snapped him after the departure of the club's last season top scorer Frederick Quayson for Ashantigold. 

Goal understands that Bekoe arrived in Sekondi on Wednesday morning to complete the deal. He is expected to form a partnership upfront with Samuel Afful. 

Bekoe netted 17 times during the 2007-08 season to win the goal king diadem before joining Egyptian side Petrojet in 2009 in a four and half-year deal. 

He made his debut for Ghana in 2008 against Mexico in an international friendly and has gone on to play 12 times, scoring four goals.
