Laryea Kingston signs for Israeli side Hapoel Be'er Sheva

Published on: 14 July 2011

Ghana midfielder Laryea Kingston is set to return to active football after agreeing a two-year deal with Israeli Premier League side Hapoel Be'er Sheva.

The 31-year-old has been unattached since terminating his contract with Dutch Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem last year December.

Kingston was prevented from playing for local side Heart of Oak which failed to secure his International Transfer Certificate in January.

He moves increases the rank of Ghanaian players at the club to four in addition to Ibrahim Basit, James Bissue and Ibrahim Abdul Razak.

Kingston claims he has the strength to play top flight football.

"I'm looking fresh, feeling good and I have six more years of football in me. With the advantage of the experience I have had throughout Europe in my career, I think this is the right time to be focused and get the club benefit from me," Kingston told Accra-based Joy FM.

Kingston played for Israeli sides Maccabi Ahi Nazareth and Hapoel Tel Aviv between 2003 and 2004.

Be'er Sheva finished 9th in the 2010/2011 Israeli Premier League.

    I agree with you. Items on the net are read by so many people, from far and near. Poor, un-edited language speaks very bad of the site. If they want to gain recognition and acceptance by outsiders they need to spend more time and resources to post items with well structured and edited language.

    Appiah and laryea got injured in an international assignment that has made them clubless. If they are trying to make it again so if u wont support them then don't tease them either.

    Bra Laryea, you will certainly return to the Black Stars, i like the determination. Once you are determined you will make it, its my dream to see you in the 2014 Fifa World cup tournaments. More grace and greeze to your elbows. God bless you.
