King Faisal are closing in on signing former Hearts of Oak shot-stopper Samuel Akurugu in the ongoing transfer window.

Akurugu is in advanced negotiations with the club over a possible switch ahead of the second round of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League, having arrived in the country after an unsuccessful stint with Japanese side Ococias Kyoto earlier this year.

The 24-year-old is currently club-less after parting ways with Japanese lower-tier side.

His contract with Hearts of Oak was mutually terminated after the 2017/18 season.

King Faisal want to augment their goalkeeping department after shipping in 29 goals in 14 matches played thus far this season.

The 'Insha Allah' lads are yet to win a game after drawing six and losing eight matches this term.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association following the directives given by the President of the Republic has suspended all its competitions with immediate effect until further notice.

The FA says it will continue to engage the relevant institutions on this matter and update its members and all stakeholders of any changes.
