Black Stars midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has signed a three-year deal with Deportivo Alaves in a move that will see him return to the Spanish La Liga.

Wakaso joins Alaves, who finished ninth in the league last season, from Greek giants Panathinaikos.

The former Ashanti Gold player has featured previously for Villarreal, Elche, Espanyol, Las Palmas and Grenada in the Spanish La Liga.

In Europe, he has featured for Rubin Kazan in Russia and Celtic in Scotland.

He was part of the Black Stars squad that won Silver at the 2015 African Cup of Nations and the team that placed fourth at Gabon 2017.

Though having been consistent in the Stars’ line-up in recent times, Wakaso was, surprisingly, left out in Kwesi Appiah’s first squad in his return as coach.
