Beleaguered Ghanaian defender, Samuel Inkoom, has been hit with another one-year ban by FIFA after failing to pay an agent he cheated in a transfer back in 2014.

In June 2017, the 29-year-old was ordered to pay Curtis Willer a football agent $65,000 or in default serve a one-year ban, Inkoom failed to pay the said money and he was banned by FIFA.

Samuel Inkoom did not heed to FIFA's order and has failed to pay the agent.

The case has been open again with the defender given another one year ban.

Samuel Inkoom has had a torrid time in his career hit after his move from FC Basel to Dnipro seven years ago.

He struggled to get into the Dnipro team and was shipped out.

Inkoom was also one of the standout players as the Black Satellites won the U20 World Cup in Egypt in 2009.

He was a key member for the Black Stars at the 2010 FIFA World Cup helping the team reach the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time.

The last time he featured for the national team was in an International friendly against the Netherlands in Rotterdam in a warm-up game for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
