Christian Atsu

Newcastle United have confirmed the permanent signing of Christian Atsu from Chelsea.

The 25-year-old Ghana international spent last season on loan at St. James' Park, making 32 league appearances and scoring five goals as Rafa Benítez's side lifted the Sky Bet Championship title.

The Magpies have now exercised an option to sign him for an undisclosed fee and the winger has signed a four-year deal.

Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan

Former Ghana international George Alhassan says Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan must win a trophy with the National team before being described as Ghana’s all-time best.

Gyan is currently the top scorer for the Black Stars with 49 goals to his credit.

The Al Ahli striker is also the most capped Black Stars player with over hundred National team appearances.

Accra Hearts of Oak

Accra Hearts of Oak continued their rich vein of form thrashing Kotoku Royals 4-0 to progress to the last 16 of the FA Cup.

A brace from center back Vincent Atinga and one each from Kwame Kizito and Cosmos Dauda sealed the victory for the Phobians who are currently on a rise.

Atinga opened the scoring via the spot in the first half before Kwame Kizito volleyed home after neat work from Patrick Razak but they had to wait until after recess to put gloss to the scoreline.

Eric Ayiah

Black Starlets captain Eric Ayiah’s exploits at the ongoing U-17 Africa Cup of Nations will come as no surprise to many now after the budding talent revealed his veneration for Cristiano Ronaldo and Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.

The 16-year-old has enchanted fans at the on-going African Junior Championship in Gabon with his sublime skills and clinical finishing. He is the leading scorer at the tournament with four goals in two matches, a brace each against Cameroon and Gabon.

Alex Amankwah

Ghanaian 800m runner Alex Amankwah wrote his name in the history books after running a personal best 1minute: 44.80 to obliterate Kennedy Osei’s 23-year old national 800m record 1minute: 45.13 at the Georgia Meet of Champions last Saturday.

Amankwah thus becomes the first Ghanaian to dip below the 1:45m mark and qualifies for the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London after meeting the entry requirement of 1minute: 45.90.

Black Starlets

Players of the Black Starlets team are battling to be fit ahead of Wednesday's CAF U17 semi-final clash against Niger.
