Boakye cancels Roda JC loan stint

Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom has parted ways with Dutch side Roda JC Kerkrade after four months with the club.

The frontman joined the Eredivisie outfit on a season-long loan in August from Italian Serie A club Atalanta.

“Roda JC have terminated the contract of Richmond Boakye-Yiadom with immediate effect,” the club announced on their official website.

“The 22-year-old Ghanaian said he does not feel happy in Kerkrade and called for his contract to be abrogated.

“Boakye made nine league appearances for Roda JC and now returns to Atalanta Bergamo.”

The former Bechem United man started seven of the nine matches, failing to find the back of the net.

In September, Boakye was handed a two-game ban by the Royal Netherlands Football Association for elbowing Feyenoord defender Rick Karsdorp on his Eredivisie debut.

Before moving to the Netherlands, the Accra-born spent season 2014-15 with Atalanta where he scored three goals in 19 appearances involving eight starts.

A season earlier, he had been on the books of Spanish side Elche on loan, finding the back of the net on six occasions in 31 matches.

Between 2011 and 2013, the forward spent time with Sassuolo and helped the side to an unsuccessful promotion attempt in arguably his best season, scoring 10 goals in 34 Serie B matches in 2012.

Atalanta boast of full ownership of Boakye after acquiring a remaining 50 per cent share from Juventus in June, having initially secured a 50% right from former side Genoa.
