Transfers DONE DEAL: Ghana’s Elisha Owusu extends stay with promoted AJ Auxerre

AFCON 2023: Mozambique and Ghana out after a draw

Ghanaian midfielder Elisha Owusu has extended his contract with AJ Auxerre through 2027 after playing a crucial role in helping the club regain promotion to the French Ligue 1.

Despite Auxerre’s relegation at the end of the 2022/23 season, Owusu’s outstanding performances were pivotal in the team’s successful campaign in Ligue 2. His contributions culminated in Auxerre clinching the Ligue 2 trophy and securing promotion back to the top flight for the 2024/25 season.

“Great news for AJA: Elisha Owusu has extended his contract until June 2027! Our vice-captain, a great architect of the rise to Ligue 1 with 33 matches played and an unforgettable goal to secure victory in the derby against Troyes (2-1), therefore links his future with that of the club.”

Owusu joined Auxerre in January 2023 but was unfortunately sidelined with a serious injury, preventing him from playing in Ligue 1 initially. However, his determination and positive attitude saw him make a strong comeback, contributing significantly to the team’s promotion campaign.

His performances also earned him a call-up to the Ghana national team for the last African Cup of Nations, where he played alongside his teammate Gideon Mensah.
