Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor on Friday announced that he had signed a three-year contract extension with Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.

The former Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur forward joined the Super League outfit in January, netting seven goals in 16 appearances last season as the club ended the campaign in second spot.

Adebayor, 33, also guided the club to the Turkish Cup final last season with Basaksehir set to participate in the UEFA Europa League during the current campaign.

“I’m very excited to announce that we’ll be extending our journey together. Special thanks to everyone that is part of the Istanbul Basaksehir,” Adebayor posted on social media.

Adebayor moved to Turkey in aftermath of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, having parted ways with Crystal Palace in July 2016.

Maritzburg United have confirmed the signing of Ghanaian shot-stopper Richard Ofori on a three-year-deal, with the option of another, as they aim to fill the gap left by Virgil Vries.

The club had opted against retaining Vries, leaving a huge hole in the last line of defence – a gap that will now be filled by Ofori.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper joins the club from Wa All Stars in the Ghanaian Premier League, having previously attracted reported interest from Mamelodi Sundowns.

Ofori will add international experience to the Team of Choice having represented his country at junior and senior level. He was part of Ghana’s 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup squad and notably formed part of the Black Stars team that participated at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
