Ghana midfielder Isaac Coffie has signed a two-year deal for Spanish second-tier side Sporting Gijon.

The 26-year-old, who was a free agent following the expiration of his contract at Italian club Genoa, was initially linked with a move to Russia and Turkey before opting for Ruben Baraja's side, who are eyeing a qualification to La Liga next season.

"Midfielder Isaac Cofie (Accra, Ghana, September 20, 1991) has become the last reinforcement to arrive at Sporting for next season," a club statement read.

"He measures 1.84 meters, weighs 75 kilos and comes from Genoa in Italy, the country where he has developed most of his professional sports career.

"The Ghanaian player will train tomorrow with the Rojiblanco team in Mareo and will later be officially presented to the fans at midday," the statement added.

Coffie spent six seasons at Genoa, making a total of 119 appearances in Serie A and scoring three goals.

He previously played for Chievo Verona, Carpi, Torino and Sassuolo Calcio.
