Ghanaian midfielder Emmanuel Yeboah has secured promotion to next year's Swedish Superettan with Umea FC on the away-goals rule at the expense of Abdul Halik Hudu's Frej on Sunday.

The 22-year-old played the entire duration in the 2-2 draw on the road at Vikingavallen in the promotion/relegation playoff second leg.

Umeå FC, who finished second in the D1 (Swedish second-tier), were tied 3-3 on aggregate after two legs but sailed through by virtue of the two away goals scored by Nigerian Isaac Boye.

Yeboah joined the Swedish side from Ghanaian lower-tier side Madina Miracle FC in 2017 after his stints with Great Olympics and Medeama SC.

He scored five goals in 27 league appearances during the regular season in the Division 1.
