The transfer market has however been full of activity especially in Europe. Today we’ll have a look at some of the African players that have so far completed their transfer deals.

Burkinabé forward who plays for Egyptian side Al-Masry SC recently made a video that was shared widely on social media, claiming that there’s widespread racism in North African football. Ghanaian journalist Nuhu Adams joined us on call from Accra, to shed some more light on that.

Senegal forward Moussa Sow has announced his retirement from international football after failing to make an appearance at the 2018 Fifa World Cup. Local reports say he called time on his international career in order to focus on club commitments.

Davies was born in Buduburam, a refugee camp in the Gomoa East District of Ghana, to Liberian parents. He received a Canadian passport just last year, and his life has changed for good.
