Barnieh unveiled by FC Zurich after Hearts extended his contract

Swiss Super League side FC Zurich have announced the signing of Black Stars midfielder Daniel Afriyie Barnieh from Accra Hearts of Oak.

The 13-time Swiss champions welcomed Barnieh on Tuesday, January 3.

The move came hours after Hearts of Oak had announced a contract extension for the goal poacher.

The deal is expected to see the former Ghana U-20 captain at the club until 2026.

Barnieh was part of the Black Stars squad at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Though he failed to get game time with Otto Addo’s side at the tournament, he was instrumental in the side’s 2-0 win over Switzerland in the pre-tournament friendly in UAE.
