Ghana target Asumah leaves Dutch club Willem II

Asumah Abubakar-Ankrah
The Eredivisie outfit say the Portuguese attacker is no more a member of the Tricolores

Dutch topflight Willem II have announced parting ways with Ghana-born Portuguese youngster Asumah Abubakar. 

The development comes two years after the winger joined the Eredivisie outfit after a successful trial.

He made 16 appearances in all over two seasons, 15 of which came last term. 

"Willem II has not reached an agreement with Asumah Abubakar," a publication on the Dutch club's official website read. 

"The 21-year-old attacker joined the Tricolores in 2016 and played 16 official matches in the Premier League. 

"The last year he was struggling with a fibula injury.

"Asumah, thanks for your efforts and good luck in the continuation of your career!"  

Asumah initially signed a one-year deal with Willem before penning another short-term term extension last year. 

The 21-year-old made headlines in 2016 following his unceremonious withdrawal from Portugal's squad at the Uefa Under-19 Championship over eligibility issues.

Born in Ghana, the winger received Portuguese citizenship only five months to the tournament. Question marks over a mandatory two-year continuous Portugal residency requirement ended his tournament prematurely after playing in the first two games. 

He remains eligible to represent Ghana as he has not made a competitive senior appearance for the Europeans.
