The Black Stars full-back has completed a two-year move to the Great Old

Ghana defender Daniel Opare has joined Belgian First Division A side Royal Antwerp in a two-year deal from Bundesliga side Augsburg, with an option for one additional year.

The 27-year-old fell out with Augsburg's top hierarchy in January after holding secret talks with Schalke, which led to a mutual termination of his contract.

"Daniel Opare comes to strengthen our ranks from Augsburg on free of transfer," a club's statement read.

"Most Belgian football fans know him from his successful period at Standard de Liege. He signed a contract for 2 seasons plus one year which is optional since it is based on his performance at the Ploeg van’t Stad.

"We warmly welcome Opare and wish him every success he aims at with our Reds," the statement added.

Opare also admitted his happiness after he was unveiled to the club's supporters.

"I'm happy to be here and I thank everyone who made this dream a success," Opare said.

"I have full confidence in the project which Antwerp have begun and how the management handles situations. I believe I can make it here and leave a good story in the minds of the supporters one day," he added.

Opare boasts of 19 appearances for Ghana and was part of the Black Satellites squad that won the World Youth Championship in 2009.
