GHANA’S DOMINIC ADIYIAH JOINS PARTIZAN BELGRADE ON LOAN
Adiyah starred for Ghana at the World Cup
Ghana striker Dominic Adiyiah has joined Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade on a six-month loan from AC Milan.
Adiyiah will now play alongside international strike partner Prince Tagoe, who signed for Partizan 24 hours earlier.
A statement on the club website said Partizan have an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
The 21-year-old was part of Ghana's team at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
He almost put Ghana into the semi-finals of the World Cup when his goal-bound header was blocked by Uruguay striker Luis Suarez in the last minute of extra-time.
He was also the leading scorer at the Under-20 World Cup which Ghana won in 2009 – prompting Milan to sign him.
Partizan have have won a record three successive league titles and are five points clear of city foes Red Star Belgrade.
Coincidentally, the former coach of Partizan Belgrade Goran Stevanovic, is now the coach of Ghana's Black Stars.
