Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has signed a deal with Cypriot side Ermis Aradippou.

Tribal Football are reporting that Frimpong has agreed a one-year deal with the Cypriot team, after being released by AFC Eskilstuna as we reported a couple of weeks ago.

The sports director Azad Budak said at the time that the player had been released for personal reasons, to do with family, but didn’t go into any further detail. It seems that thankfully these problems have now been resolved, as Frimpong has found a new club.

The midfielder started his career in the youth teams at Arsenal, spending 10 years with the u21s before joining the senior team in 2011. After 14 appearances with the first-team that season, Frimpong went on loan to Wolves and never found his way back to regular football with the Gunners.

In fact, he’s struggled to find much football at all in recent years. Since the summer of 2014 the Ghana midfielder has made 38 appearances, averaging just under 13-per-season. This has also been combined with a complete lack of international appearances during that period.

Now he’s seemingly been given another chance to prove himself. Here hoping he makes the most of it.
