Esperance de Tunis Ghanaian striker Emmanuel Clottey signed a one-year loan deal with Al-Zafra, the UAE side announced on Monday.

The leading goal scorer in the last edition of the CAF Champions League with the Ghanaian side Berekum Chelsea signed a three-year contract deal with Esperance de Tunis in January, but he has failed to establish himself with the Tunisian giant during the past six months.

"I am very happy to play in the UAE," Clottey said on Monday.

"I am looking forward to putting on a great performance there, just like my compatriot Asamaoh Gyan who shone with Al-Ain," he added.

The Ghanaian skipper Gyan, who joined Al-Ain in the summer of 2011, produced a string of strong displays with the UAE side scoring 53 goals in 40 appearances.
