Coach Samuel Boadu added that they have beefed up their team with a quality striker in Basit.

“Basit is a great addition for us and we’re looking forward to working with him.

“He has so far integrated well and we are looking forward to working with him.”

Basit left New Edubiase in 2013 to join South African giants Free States Stars, but left after two seasons to rejoin the Ghanaian club.

After just a season, he moved to Sweden to sign for Gefle IF before joining Frej.
