Davis Epassy Mbota has secured a move to Saudi Arabian top-flight side Ahba Club from Greek Super League vice champions OFI Crete.
Epassy has left Crete after just one season in which he made a name for himslf.
He was voted goalkeeper of the season at the end of a great debut season which saw OFI Crete finish runners-up to league winners Olympiakos after the title play-offs.
The 29-year-old was a standout player for Nikos Nioplias’ team and scooped the league management body’s award after showing consistency and leadership throughout, with very few errors in spite of Crete’s spotted defensive problems throughout the campaign.
He has played in all but ten of Crete’s top-flight games last season, making 27 appearances overall and accumulating 2,430 minutes of playing time. He has started in all 27 of these appearances across their 33 fixtures.
He kept a total of 14 clean sheets last season in the Super League 1 campaign, ranking second in this category across all goalkeepers in the competition.
The Cameroon international has since this weekend flown to Saudi Arabia to complete formalities for the transfer.
Though he has been capped on four occasions, Epassy plays cover role to Cameroon’s first choice keeper Andre Onana who recently switched from Ajax to Inter Milan.
