Ghana’s William Amamoo returning to Swedish top flight

Ghana international William Amamoo has been approached by struggling Swedish side Halmstads BK to help them survive relegation, Goal.com can reveal.

The 26-year-old has been training with the Allsvenskan side for the past two weeks, but he may not be able to immediately return to the limelight until the transfer season opens in July.

“A lot of clubs are after me, but they are my first option,” the Black Panther told Goal.com. “They treated me really well and I didn’t feel like I was a guest among the players.”

The former Hapoel Petah Tikva keeper noted that although he might be joining the club at the latter part of the season, his priority will be to bring them to a respectable position on the log.

“I hope to do the same thing as I did for FC Sopron. They were at the bottom, but I finished fourth with them at the end of the Hungarian season in 2007.

“I have been in good form and training the goalkeepers of Swedish second division side Enkoping has been good for me. It’s good to be recognized and I hope to be back in the limelight. I want to enhance my club career now,” he added.

Amamoo said he is bent on staying in Sweden because he wants to be closer to his family.

Goal.com is reliably informed that the last line of defence, who brought Ghana league side Liberty Professionals to the elite division, is holding discussions with officials of Halmstads on June 6 concerning details of his contract.

Amamoo has won best goalkeeping awards on three occasions within three different European leagues.
