Spanish top tier side Celta Vigo have wished Ghanaian defender Joseph Aidoo the best of luck as Ghana trade tackles with Nigeria for a slot at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Aidoo has been a stalwart in defence for Celta Vigo since the start of the year and will be expected to transfer his purple patch form for the Sky Blues to the Black Stars.

The 26-year-old has turned what was supposed to be a discouraging start of the year into a transformational 2022 after capping back-to-back Player of the month awards with a return to the Black Stars.
