Atinga has been without a club since leaving Hearts of Oak after his contract expired at the end of the 2016/17 season.

He becomes the second Ghanaian to join the club this week after his former Hearts of Oak team-mate Winful Cobbina. He also signed a three year deal with the club on Thursday.

Atinga played an instrumental role in the Black Stars B side that won the 2017 WAFU Cup.
