Former Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan has rejected contract extension offer at Beitar Jerusalem, just a month after joining, GHANAsoccernet.com can report.

The 32-year-old penned a six-month deal with the club in February on a free transfer.

But the Ghanaian has refused contract extension after receiving fresh financial offers to extend his deal.

The former Hearts of Oak enforcer joins the Jerusalem-based outfit as a free agent after ending his three-year stay with Finnish champions HJK Helsinki at the end of last term.

The diminutive middleman is expected to use his experience to help Nir Klinger’s side achieve their European football competition target.

Annan has featured for clubs including Rosenborg BK, Schalke 04, Vitesse, Osasuna HJK and a host of others.

He was part of the squad that qualified Ghana to its maiden appearance at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Annan amassed 67 caps for Ghana’s senior national team and scored two goals.
