OFFICIAL: Baba Rahman seals loan switch to Real Mallorca

Ghana defender Baba Rahman has completed a deadline day move Spanish side Real Mallorca.

The left-back joins the newly-promoted La Liga outfit on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea.

The 25 year old becomes the second Ghanaian to join the club this summer after Lumor Agbenyenu who transferred from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.

Baba’s career hasn’t exactly gone as planned since Chelsea bought him in 2015 after his growing reputation as one of Bundesliga’s best.

A torn ACL has caused his game-play to regress and a subsequent one-and-a-half season loan spell at Schalke in 2016 hadn’t helped, owing to his recurring injuries.

He did marginally better at his Reims stint last season, but his actual potential was exhibited at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, where he was one of the best players in the competition.
