Kingston signs for Swedish Club

Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingson has joined Swedish premiership side Hammarby from Turkish club Ankaraspor.

The 28 year-old, who played for Ghana at last year's World Cup finals, signed a three month contract with the team, according to the club's website.

"By joining us, Richard has increased the competition among the keepers because we already have two other top keepers," goalkeeping coach Lasse Eriksson said.

He added that the team is happy to have the Ghanaian because he brings a wealth of experience with him that includes 46 appearances for the Black Stars.

"Richard has very good reflexes and is marvellous in the box, he has a cool head and a lot of experience," Eriksson added.
