Delay to the start of our Ghana Premier League forced my move out – Daniel Agyei

Published on: 01 December 2016

Ex-Ghana Under-20 goalkeeper Daniel Agyei has revealed that the delay to the start of the 2016/2017 Ghana Premier League season is a major reason for his move to Tanzanian powerhouse Simba FC.


The 27-year-old, who has agreed terms with Simba FC, arrived in the East African country to complete his move to the current League leaders on Wednesday.


Agyei is a free agent after ending his short contract with Ghanaian side Medeama and was linked to a move to MTN FA Cup winners Bechem United but he has decided to make a move abroad.


“I wanted to travel and get more playing time and play with a traditional team out there, one reason for my move.” “I also want my kids to say that our dad played for many clubs around the world.” “I don’t need to brag about what I can do, I have already done a lot as a player and I want to continue to make more impact out there.”

“The delay to the start of our league also forced me out. I was supposed to play with Bechem United but things weren’t going as fast as I wanted.” He told Happy FM.


The former Liberty Professionals gloves-man caught the attention of Simba after impressing during the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup match against Young Africans where the two teams shared the spoils in a 1-1 stalemate.


The experienced safest pair of hands who won the 2009 FIFA U-20 world cup for Ghana will add to the growing list of Ghanaian players in the Tanzanian Premier League after Samuel Afful and Yahaya Mohammed completed their switch to Azam FC.


Already ex-Medeama duo Enoch Attah Agyei and Daniel Amoah have signed for the Ice Cream Makers.
