Scottish side Falkirk FC release Ghanaian midfielder Prince Buaben

Published on: 04 January 2019

Ghana international Prince Buaben has been released by Scottish Championship side Falkirk FC after his contract with the club ended in the ongoing January transfer window.

Buaben, 30, penned a short-term deal with the club in October 2018 after he was released by Hearts of Midlothian in the summer.

The experienced midfielder was heavily tipped to use his experience to help extricate the club's ailing campaign where they are languishing at the bottom of the standings.

But he failed to command a regular playing time as he struggled with injuries, making just seven appearances for Ray Mckinnon's side.

He is part of four players released by the club to make room for new signings.

Falkirk FC are currently languishing at the bottom of the Scottish championship table with 13 points after 19 round of matches.

Buaben grew up in the Netherlands and was a youth player at AFC Ajax, but was forced to leave the club due to residency issues. He joined Dundee United in 2007 and won the Scottish Cup with them in 2010.

He played in England from 2011, with Watford and later Carlisle United. He returned to Scotland in 2014, playing for Partick Thistle on loan prior to joining Hearts.

He helped Hearts win promotion in 2015, during his four years with the club. He signed for Falkirk in October 2018.
