Former Ghana international Anthony Annan has joined Israeli top-flight side Beitar Jerusalem on a deal that will run until the end of the season.
Annan, 32, signed the deal with the Black and Yellow lads on Tuesday after passing a mandatory medical.
However, Beitar Jerusalem have the option to sign him on for another year if he impresses.
The former Hearts of Oak enforcer joins the Jerusalem-based outfit as a free agent after ending his three-year stay with Finnish champions HJK Helsinki at the end of the last term.
The diminutive middleman is expected to use his experience to help Nir Klinger’s side achieve their European football competition target.
Annan has featured for clubs including Rosenborg BK, Schalke 04, Vitesse, Osasuna HJK and a host of others.
He was part of the squad that qualified Ghana to its maiden appearance at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Annan has featured 67 times for the senior national team, Black Stars, scoring two goals.
