Inkoom: Platanias FC move a “huge relief”

The rear man has sealed a six-month loan deal with the Greek top flight side and feels so delighted with the move that could enhance his World Cup call

Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom said signing for Greek Premiership side Platanias FC on a six-month loan deal comes as “a huge relief” to him.

The guardsman had not enjoyed play time at Ukrainian side Dnipro for close to a year now and that almost derailed his international career, but sealing a deal on Monday makes him “a happy player now.”

“I am so happy and relieved,” the 24-year-old told Goal Ghana moments after sealing the deal. “It’s a dream come through. I am ready to give off my best to prepare me for the months ahead.”

The 2009 Under-20 World Cup winner said although the deal will give him enough first team experience ahead of the 2014 World Cup, his immediate priority is to help the 14th-placed Greek side to improve their standings on the log.

“Let me focus on club duties first and after we can talk about the World Cup. I am most grateful to God for this opportunity. I am going to make good use of it,” Inkoom, who was once loaned to Ligue 1 side Bastia, stated.
