Appiah heads to the K-League

The Central Coast Mariners have sold winger Kwabena Appiah to South Korean side Incheon United.

Appiah would have been out of contract at the Gosford club at the end of the season, but has left just ahead of the transfer deadline day for an undisclosed fee.

Kwabena's transfer is a great example of the direction this club is committed to when it comes to developing and selling players.

Central Coast are happy with the deal for the 25-year-old, according to chief executive Shaun Mielekamp.

He said: "Kwabena's transfer is a great example of the direction this club is committed to when it comes to developing and selling players. We are confident that many players will follow in the footsteps of Kwabena and continue to make waves in big leagues overseas."

Appiah's move to the K-League side comes after he appeared in every game so far this season, though he was a substitute six times.

The New Zealand-born winger joined Western Sydney in 2012 as one of the expansion club's first three signed players, and played 25 games for Wanderers over three seasons.

He then had a one-season spell with Wellington Phoenix, before joining Central Coast in 2016, making 38 appearances overall and scoring two goals.

It's one out and one in for the Mariners, who have brought defender Jacob Poscoliero back to the club from Perth Glory.

The 27-year-old played 47 times for Central Coast across three seasons, before moving to Perth last year, but was released by the Glory after making eight appearances.

Poscoliero could be rushed into the match-day squad for Sunday's visit of Western Sydney Wanderers.

The Mariners are 9/5 to beat Western Sydney, who are 6/4, with the draw 12/5.
