Danish club Vejle have withdrawn Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena from team engagements due to a relapse in his heart condition.
On loan from Spanish La Liga side Levante, the 25-year-old was looking to make a big comeback this season after a similar health problem truncated a loan spell with Real Zaragoza in the Spanish second division last term.
He has made five league appearances for the newly-promoted club Vejle and scored twice.
“After the club’s promotion to the 3F Superligaen, Vejle Boldklub signed a contract with Raphael Dwamena,” the Danish outfit had announced on their official website.
It is the third time Dwamena’s career is having to take a hit by his heart condition. In 2017, the Nkawkaw-born saw a move to Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion cancelled for reportedly failing a medical in relation to his heart condition.
“I am truly grateful for the opportunity that Vejle Boldklub gave me to play football again. Now I have been taken off the field and am under medical supervision,” the forward said.
“Despite not being able to be on the pitch, I still want to help the club achieve its goals. Therefore, I would also like to say to both my teammates, the staff and the fans that I am proud to be part of the Vejle Boldklub family.”
A Red Bull Salzburg academy product, Dwamena joined Swiss side FC Zurich in 2017 following an impressive loan spell with Lustenau in the Austrian second tier.
In the summer of 2018, he transferred to Spain to join Levante.
“That there has now been one case where the limit values have been too high, we must, based on a health professional assessment as a club, take the consequence. Raphael is therefore taken off the field,” Vejle technical manager Jacob Kruger said.
