“I will be leaving the country [Ghana] for Sweden this week to finalise the paper works with Hacken,” Okrah confided in Goal Ghana. “I will sign a six-month loan contract which runs until the end of the season and I hope to have a successful medicals. Honestly, I believe my stay will be a success.”

The ex-Feyenoord Academy and Asante Kotoko player had a successful trials with Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon last April after the local league was halted for the CHAN tournament but opted to join the Swedish outfit after being promised a first team action by Gerhardsson.
