Benjamin Afutu Kotey joins Saudi Arabian Lower-tier side Al-Taqadom FC.


Benjamin Afutu has completed a move to join Saudi side Al-Taqadom FC.

The midfielder joins the Saudi third-tier side after leaving Eastern Company FC in June.

Several reports linked in with a return to Hearts of Oak. However, the player has followed the steps of former teammate Bernard Arthur to sign for the Saudi Arabian lower division side.

Benjamin Afutu Kotey was a big hit for the Phobians after joining from Karela United.

He was part of the Hearts of Oak team that ended their league drought and won the FA Cup.

Afutu Kotey failed to agree on a contract extension which saw him join Eastern Company on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old couldn’t hold down a place in the Egyptian until June when the contract was mutually terminated.
