The Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) has lifted the ban on Ghanaian defender Samuel Inkoom after almost a year of inactivity. 

The 2009 U20 World Cup winner was suspended by the world’s football governing body following a dispute between the player and former agent Curtis Willer over the settlement of a fee back in 2014.

The former Vereya FC defender was ordered to pay the World In Motion boss or serve a one-year ban in default, an amount the former FC Basel star failed to raise.

Fifa further extended the sanction in May 2018.

However, the defender is believed to have settled his former agent and FIFA has agreed to lift the ban to allow the player revive his career.

According information gathered by, clubs from France, Belgium and Blugaria are tracking the free agent player.

Inkoom last played for Bulgarian club Vereya and has since been inactive following spells with FC Basel, D.C United, Dnipro and Platanias in the past.
