Isaac Cofie announces departure from Italian side Genoa

Ghanaian midfielder Isaac Cofie has announced his departure from Serie A side Genoa after ten years at the club.

The 26 year old rose through the Genoa Youth team (Primavera) to establish himself as an important member of the first team.

Newly promoted Parma and Empoli are reportedly leading the chase for his signature as they look to strengthen their midfield in the summer transfer window.

Cofie took to his Instagram page after playing his final game for the club against Torino to bid them an emotional farewell.

"Dear beloved fans,
is with the heart in hand that I write you on the eve of my (maybe) last match with our beloved team.The time has come for the greetings, I think back to the ten years spent together despite some loans in other teams.I remember the separation from my land and the hope of a better future: a dream that It was soon realized, I was welcomed by your beloved city, by its people, by its desire to feel Genoa football as a bulwark of this wonderful land. The colors Red and Blue, the only colors that represent for me Genoa, red like the heart and blue like the sky, I have soon impressed in the skin and the heart and this means that together we shared the joys and sorrows of our team . I embrace all with infinite affection, all those who have always supported me because they supported me throughout the group. For me, Genoa is the only team in Genoa. Thanks to the company, all coaches and companions for all these years. I will follow you and I will always carry you inside my heart, you are unique !!!

Your Cofie Isaac "
