Former Ghana Premier League topscorer Kofi Owusu has signed a one-year deal with Burkina Faso topflight Salitas FC with an option for an additional year.

The 26-year-old mutually terminated his contract with Ashanti Gold last month despite having one year left.

Owusu made only five appearances and scored one goal as the Miners survived relegation on final day of last season.

"I can't say much but I'm happy with this move. I want to have my career back on track after some few setbacks," Owusu said.

"I believe strongly Burkina Faso will be a blessing to my life despite the criticisms. Burkina is a football nation so with hard work, I can get a good deal to improve my living and the club's finances.

"Thanks to everyone who played a role in my coming here and thanks to Ashanti Gold for the time I spent with them. I am really grateful for the opportunity but I had to leave," he added.

Goal understands that Owusu, who won the 2015 Premier League goal king award with 17 goals, is back to Kumasi and will leave Ghana next week to start training with the Ouagadougou-based club.
