Mudasiru Salifu, a midfielder, has expressed his delight at joining Saudi Arabian side Al Batin FC.
Salifu took to his official Twitter page to express his excitement: “Happy to be part of Al Batin FC family. Can’t wait to give my all,”
The midfielder is joining Al Batin for the remainder of the 2022-23 season after a successful loan spell at Moldovan champions Sherrif Tiraspol where he joined in July last year.
Al Batin has the option to sign the 25-year-old midfielder permanently if he excels during his short stint.
Salifu made 21 appearances in all competitions for Sherrif in the Moldovan League, UEFA Champions League qualifications, UEFA Europa League playoff, and the Europa League group stages.
Al Batin FC is currently languishing bottom of the Saudi Pro League with just a point after 11 rounds of matches and Salifu’s addition will be required to improve things going forward.
Salifu becomes the second Ghanaian player to play for Al Batin after former Black Stars midfielder Afriyie Acquah from July 2021 to January 2022.
