The 29-year-old Ghanaian defender was banned in 2017 by the world football governing body for a breach of contract with his agent Andrew Evans for failing to pay his part of the transfer fees to Dnipro from FC Basal in 2014.

Inkoom’s suspension was extended in May 2018 because he failed to raise the monies involved to settle his former agent.

However, the former Asante Kotoko defender after a year of inactivity has been pardoned by FIFA to pave way for him to return to the field, according to information gathered by Pulse Sports.

Samuel Inkoom was plying his trade in Bulgaria with Vereya, before he suffered the first ban in 2017 and before it was extended in May, 2018, he was reportedly joining Al Merreikh in the Sudanese topflight league, but the deal fell through due to the ban.

Samuel Inkoom was part of the Black Satellites team that made history as the first African country to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2009.

He also represented Ghana in two different FIFA World Cups- 2010 in South Africa and 2014 in Brazil.
