Rayon Sports have completed the signing of Togolese striker Alex Harlley Nyarko from American side Las Vegas Lights ahead of the 2020-21 season.

It is reported that Harlley, 27, is a nephew to former Arsenal star Emmanuel Adebayor.


In a short video announcing his signing on Friday, Harlley said: “Hey Rayon Sports fans, I am happy to sign for you. See you next season, let’s make history together. Ciao!”


He previously played for the FC Santa Clarita, Atlanta Silverbacks, Pittsburgh Riverhounds and Georgia Revolution FC – all in the United States.

Nine-time champions Rayon look to rebuild and certainly have a lot to do with their squad that lacks in many positions following the departures of most of its key players. 

Former skipper Eric Rutanga and right-back Eric Iradukunda crossed to rivals Police, while goalkeeper Yves Kimenyi and left-back Eric Irambona were signed at SC Kiyovu. Midfielder Fabrice Mugheni has also since left the club while Ghana-born striker Michael Sarpong was released in April.
