Former Black Stars midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu is optimistic about playing in the Ghana Premier League (GPL), possibly next season.

Agyemang Badu, who once played for Asante Kotoko in 2008, is currently without a club after his contract with Chinese club Qingdao FC ended.

According to the 31-year-old energetic midfielder, he still had plans to play in Europe next season, but would play for a local team if a deal doesn’t work out in Europe.

In an interview with GNA Sports, Agyemang-Badu revealed that a couple of GPL teams had approached him about a possible move, but was weighing up his options before he decides.

“I have had offers to play in the GPL from numerous teams in Accra and Kumasi, but I still want to go back to Europe with my agents still working out things.

“So let’s see if nothing happens for me in Europe, I am 120% optimistic about featuring in the Ghana Premier League next season,” he said.

He added that he was happy with the competitiveness of the just-ended league and rated it at 80% despite the hitches that came up at the latter stages of the season.

Agyemang Badu played an instrumental role when Ghana’s Black Satellites won the U-20 FIFA World Cup in Egypt in 2009, having also featured at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
