BK Hacken land John Owoeri on a two-year deal

27 November 2015, 16:37

Stockholm - Swedish top division team BK Hacken have announced on their official website that John Owoeri has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the club.

Following the demotion of Åtvidabergs FF from the Allsvenskan at the end of the 2015 season, there had been a strong possibility that Owoeri will not be playing in the second-tier next term and this has come to pass.

BK Häcken lost the services of Abdul Majeed Waris to Spartak Moscow in the winter of 2013 and the sporting director of The Wasps, Sonny Karlsson, reckons that Owoeri can step into the shoes of the Ghana international.

“John Owoeri has characteristics we want and he has always made good games against us,” Karlsson told the club's official website.

''He is extremely fast, strong, has great balance and is a skilled striker that is somewhat reminiscent of Abdul Majeed Waris in playing style.''

The former Heartland star notched six goals in 29 appearances in 2015 for Åtvidabergs FF and ended the season as the club's top scorer.

Apart from the aforementioned teams, John Owoeri previously represented Bendel Insurance, Feyenoord, Westerlo, Ismaily and Sunshine Stars.
