Hearts of Oak defender Isaac Baidoo has put pen to paper for Nigeria Professional Football League side Ifeanyi Ubah in a two-year deal with an option for an additional year.

The 22-year-old has not been a regular for the Phobians in the Ghana Premier League this season under Frank Elliott Nuttall, but his qualities didn't go unnoticed and has been signed by the Nigerian giants following a recommendation from head coach Yaw Preko and another scout, according to reports.

"This is a big opportunity for me and I hope to build on that to achieve success," Baidoo told Goal.

"I want to be a superstar and that needs commitment so I will do my best here to get playing time. There are a lot of Ghanaians in the Nigerian league so I don't think I'm going to miss home frequently.

"I've heard a lot about the club and the expectations of the supporters but I'm ready for the challenge. My performance here, whether good or bad will have a bearing on transfers in the future so I don't have to be a bad example," he added.

Ifeanyi sit eight on the log with 28 points after 19 matches.
