Former Hearts of Oak Striker, Joseph Esso Joins Algerian Club
Former Hearts of Oak forward, Joseph Esso has signed a three-year contract with MC Alger from Dreams FC.
The 24-year-old is the third attacker, this season, to leave the local league for Algeria after Daniel Lomotey and Kwame Opoku signed for ES Setif and USM Alger respectively.
Joseph Esso scored 10 goals this season in the Ghana Premier League. He was confirmed as Alger’s new signing on Tuesday morning.
Dreams signed Esso before the start of the season as a free agent after he left Hearts of Oak.
The Phobians could not extend Esso’s contract due to his reported “huge demands”.
His 10 goals have been of great benefit to the club, who are currently occupying the sixth spot after 17 games.
Esso was part of the Ghana squad that finished as runners-up at the 2019 WAFU Cup of Nations in Senegal.
He was named in the Black Stars squad that faced South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifications this month.
