Medeama have announced the signing of slender former Red Star Belgrade striker Nathaniel Asamoah on a two-year deal.
The 25-year-old has joined the Mauve and Yellows after leaving Serbian top-flight side following a contractual dispute.
"We would like to announce the capture of striker Nathaniel Asamoah who has signed a two-year deal with the club,'' Chief Executive James Essilfie told medeamasc.com
"Nat is a great player with an excellent technique. We believe in his quality and ability and hope he settles in well to help our cause.
Ghanaian striker Nathaniel Asamoah has cancelled his contract with Red Star Belgrade just over a year after joining the Serbian club.
The 23-year-old who joined Red Star from Asante Kotoko is leaving over unpaid wages and bonuses.
The Serbian club have also failed to pay the transfer monies owed Kotoko for signing the striker.
They have been ordered by FIFA to play the Ghanaian champions in excess of 300,000 Euros for their failure to honour their financial obligations.
Asamoah has already arrived in Ghana to hold talks with clubs interested in his services.
Ismael Beko Fofana
Ismael Beko Fofana has signed a 4-year deal with Serbian giants Partizan Belgrade.
The former Shirak striker will be wearing jersey number 10 at his new club.
Fofana started his career back home in Ivory Coast and got spotted in 2007 by Charlton FC scouts followed by a deal with this London club but Fofana wasn`t eligible to play in England due to inability to gain working permit. Therefore, he was sent out on a loan to Fredrikstad of Norway followed by spells in low tier French sides and return back home in 2010 to play for Sewe Sports.
He moved to Shirak and scored 15 goals over 31 league apps in a first season. Last season he was loaned to Iran side Zob Ahan. This season, back in Shirak, he recommended himself to Partizan after fine performances over UEFA Champions League Round 2 ties.

Asante Kotoko have written to FIFA to claim its due transfer fee from Serbian club Red Star Belgrade for the sale of striker Nathaniel Asamoah.
The Ghana Premier League champions are fed up with the persistent postponed payment of the reported €200,000 move.
“Nat’s (Asamoah) transfer was about 200,000 euros but up until now there are problems with payment of the transfer fee,” Kotoko’s spokesman Listowell Yesu Bukarson told Kumasi-based Angel FM.
“So Dr. Sarpong (Kotoko chairman) has asked the our lawyers to write to FIFA to assist us in retrieving this money.
“There are a lot of qualities; speed and strength, and at the same time he is young and has a long way,” Red Star coach Robert Prosinecki said.
“He has been able to adapt to the new environment. He is really a good striker.”
