Russian Premier League side FC Ufa have snapped up former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong.

The 22-year-old was released by Barnsley at the end of last season, upon the club's relegation from the Championship.

Now he has bounced back in Russia, penning a three-year contract with FC Ufa.

The Russian side have handed Frimpong the number 5 shirt.


Frimpong is a product of Arsenal's youth system and had loan spells at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Charlton and Fulham.


The Ghana international struggled to break through at Arsenal and left on a permanent basis for Barnsley last term.

Frimpong will now look forward to a new adventure in Russia.
