The Ghanaian winger has parted ways with the Blues, bringing to an end his six-month stay in the Egyptian Premier League

Ghanaian midfielder Augustine Okrah has left Egyptian club FC Smouha after a mutual termination of his contract, Goal understands.

The 24-year-old joined the Alexandria-based outfit last January in a two-and-half-a-year deal from Sudanese side Al Hilal. He scored one goal in 11 games in the Egyptian Premier League.

"Okrah has left Smouha and the decision was a mutual one. Things weren't going as planned for him so he asked them to allow him to move on and they accepted," a source close to the player told Goal.

"He believes it was the best decision he can take to help his career and is now on the lookout for a new challenge. There have been several interests but he is weighing the options in order to make a good choice before the season kicks off.

"Okrah enjoys playing regularly and he is hoping to join a club that suits his style. Also, he wants a club with a little consistency in how coaches are hired and fired since situations like that have previously affected him," the source added.

Okrah was topscorer and best player in the 2013-14 Ghana Premier League season with Bechem United.
