Elmina Sharks striker, Benjamin Bernard Boateng has left Ghana for Egypt to finalize a quite rumoured move to Al Ittihad Alexandria Club.

The 20-year-old flew out of Accra Wednesday night and is expected to sort out the personal terms of a long-term contract as well as undergo mandatory medical at the Alexandria-based Egyptian Premier League side.

Sharks – who survived the Ghana Premier League by snatching a crucial win against Asante Kotoko on the final day of the 2020/21 season –  have already concluded negotiations with Al Ittihad.

It is rumoured the Nduom Sports Complex outfit could earn an amount in the region of $100,000 as transfer fee from the ‘Masters of the City’.

Boateng was crucial to Sharks’ survival this season, scoring 8 goals in 25 league appearances (2,147 minutes) and bagging four man-of-the-match awards.

In the previous season, the lanky attacker with quick feet registered 7 goals in 14 league games before the campaign got cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Al Ittihad Alexandria currently place 5th in the 18-club 2020/21 Egyptian Premier League standings with 41 points from 28 matches.
