Joseph Attamah has cancelled contract with Rizespor

Ghana international midfielder Joseph Attamah has cancelled his contract with Caykur Rizespor after just six months at the Turkish top-flight side, can exclusively reveal.

The 25-year-old called for the abrogation of his contract on Saturday morning after weeks of disagreement over the continuous changing roles for the versatile player.

This comes just six months after the talented midfielder joined the club on loan from their Super Lig rivals Istanbul Basaksehir on a season long loan.

The management of the club called for a meeting to address the issues but both parties agreed for a mutual termination of the deal to enable the Ghanaian to move.

"Our club has mutually agreed with Joseph Attamah, who we acquired at the start of the season, to terminate his contract," a statement from the club read on Saturday.

"We thank him for his services to our club and wish him success in his next football career."

Attamah has been a key player for Rizespor so far this season having played 14 matches in the Turkish top-flight but he will look elsewhere to continue his career.

He has a contract with Basaksehir until 2023 but will have a meetring on Saturday night to decide his next club destination.

The Ghana star will now return to his parent team Basaksehir but he will not play for the club because the Turkish law won't allow a player to play for three clubs per season in the same division.

That is because Attamah played for Başakşehir in the Champions League qualification against Greek side Olympiakos in July before joining Rizespor.

He was part of the Ghana squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations held in Egypt.

Larweh joined İstanbul Başakşehir from Adana Demirspor in 2016.
