Malaysian club PKNP FC have completed the signing of former Hearts of Oak skipper Thomas Abbey.

The 25-year-old penned a deal with the Reds after undergoing a successful one month trial.

Abbey terminated his contract with Ismaily in Egypt after joining them last year due to lack of playing time and has been clubless since August.

The versatile winger becomes the second Ghanaian footballer to join PKNP FC after Alfred Okai Quaye, formerly of Berekum Chelsea.

He was part of the Black Stars B squad that won the 2017 WAFU tournament which was held in Ghana.

His fantastic form for Hearts of Oak last season in the Ghana Premier League saw him win the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Footballer of the Year for 2017.

Thomas began his career at Soccer Intellectuals in 2000-2005. In the 2010–11 season, Abbey joined Hearts of Oak from divisional club Windy Professionals.

In 2018, Abbey ended his six years stay at Hearts of Oak and signed a two-year contract with Egyptian club Ismaily SC, however, he terminated his contract after reaching a mutual agreement with the club.
