Clubs express interest in signing Ghana and Columbus Crew defender Lalas Abubakar

Published on: 28 October 2019

Columbus Crew President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko has disclosed that clubs are interested in signing Ghanaian defender Lalas Abubakar.

Abubakar spent last season on loan at MLS side Colorado Rapids where he made 22 appearances for Rapids during the regular season, putting up incredible performances week in week out.

The 25-year-old was a rock at the heart of defence for Rapids. If the Crew decide to sell him, it would open a spot at center back ahead of the 2020 campaign.

''We want to make sure that we’re making a decision that’s best for our club,'' Bezbatchenko said.

''But we’re obviously going to speak to Lalas and see what he wants to do as well.''
