Ghanaian midfielder Elvis Sakyi has joined Israeli side Maccabi Petah Tikva in the ongoing transfer.

The 23-year-old joins the Blue and Whites on a one-year deal with the option to extend next summer.

Sakyi sign for the club as a free-agent after his contract with Maltese Premier League outfit Senglea Athletic FC expired at the end of last term.

He spent the first half of last season at fellow Maltese club Gzira United FC before joining Senglea Athletic FC in the January window.

The former Cheetah player is expected to help Maccabi Petah Tikva move back into the Israeli second division after they were demoted to the third-tier last season.
