Ghanaian youngster Samuel Alabi is happy after his impressive loan performance earned him a permanent stay at Israeli side FC Ashdod.

Alabi has penned down a four-year contract with the Yud-Alef Stadium outfit, ending his association with the Ghanaian club Dreams FC.

"I am very happy with this new contract, it has been a good first season for me but I believe I can do more as time goes on," Alabi told Graphic Sports Online.

"This permanent contract is actually a dream come through. I will keep doing my best."

On settling at the club after joining them from the GPL, he added, "It has been a little bit difficult because of the new environment, new teammates, different coaches, and different languages and in all is like you starting a new life."

"So, I just told myself that this is the opportunity I have waited for long and I must make things happen. Truly I have not disappointed."

The 20-year has made 17 appearances for Ashdod in the Israeli Premier League this season, scored one goal and provided an assist thus far.
