Egyptian side FC Smouha have signed Ghanaian midfielder Augustine Okrah in a two-and-half-year deal, the club have confirmed.

The 24-year-old joined the Alexandria-based club as a free agent after mutually terminating his contract with Sudanese champions Al Hilal Omdurman a fortnight ago.

Okrah spent three years in Sudan, initially with Al Merreikh between 2014 and 2016 before crossing carpet to city rivals Hilal in 2017 to become one of the most controversial transfers ever to happen in the country in the past two decades.

"It's exciting and I'm honoured to be here in Egypt. I'm really impressed with the facilities and how there are other sporting teams aside football, which are owned by the club," Okrah told Goal.

"I want to do my best to help improve the club's performance so we can achieve what we aimed at after the season. 

"I'm grateful to everyone at Merreikh and Hilal for the opportunity to represent them and the support they gave me during my three-year stay. Egypt is now my new home and I've got to make it a better place," he added.
