Italian Serie A side Parma have officially signed Afriyie Acquah on a permanent basis from Hoffenheim after a successful loan spell.

A statement on the club’s website read: “Parma FC announces that midfielder Afriyie Acquah remains at Parma. The club has reached an agreement with TSG Hoffenheim. Details will be announced on a later date.”

Reports in Italy say German outfit Hoffenheim accepted a transfer fee worth €2m.

The 22-year-old was sold to Hoffenheim by Palermo in January 2013 for €2.2m, but after six months was sent out on loan to the Stadio Tardini.

Acquah made 27 appearances for the Gialloblu last term and scored one goal to help them secure a Europa League spot.

He was a member of the Ghana squad at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals Brazil.

Acquah made his debut by coming off the bench in their final Group G match against Portugal, which ended a 2-1 defeat.

    We should never allow clueless and mean AA to waste promising talents like Atsu,Aqyah etc.He will prefer playing Dauda,Adomah no matter the cost to the fortunes of the black stars. AA is a disaster,no wonder he was striped of the black star captaincy and given to Abedi. Whatever medium possible let's campaign to rid him off. A good coach could have sorted the differences with KPB .

    I agree with you,Ghana need and deserve a better coach...we have great potential but this potential will be realised with such an incompetent coach in charge.
