Abdul Rahman Baba was expected to join up with PAOK Thessaloniki in Greece for the remainder of the season, and now the move has been officially confirmed by both the clubs.

Baba Rahman’s career since joining Chelsea in 2015 has been mired with injuries, including a cruciate ligament rupture in January 2017 that kept him out of action for almost one and a half years.

He had been training with Chelsea’s development team this season, and his impressive performances have even earned him a recall to the Ghana national team.

At PAOK, who are currently in 4th place in the Greek Super League, he will be expected to fill in as a starter at the left back position after Dimitrios Giannoulis’ departure to Norwich City. While there were rumors of a buying option being inserted into the deal, there is no official confirmation on the front yet.

Good luck in Greece, Baba!
