Struggling National League side Solihull Moors have re-signed Akwasi Asante on a loan deal from League Two club Grimsby Town.
The 25-year-old striker enjoyed a prolific 18-month spell at Damson Park, scoring 21 goals during the 2015-16 campaign as Moors romped to the National League North title.
Having fired Liam McDonald’s men to promotion, Asante’s form soon impressed Grimsby, who signed him in January, but after a bright start at Blundell Park, injury has curtailed the pacy forward’s spell with the Mariners.
As a result, he is back at Damson Park on a three-month deal, and become’s Richard Money’s second signing as Moors boss following his appointment at the start of October.
With the arrival of Coventry City defender Chris Camwell at one end of the pitch, and Asante at the other, it is clear to see where the former Luton boss feels Moors have their most problems.
Money will be hoping his new striker can recapture the sort of form that endeared him to the Moors faithful, as the club are currently languishing 23rd in the National League – just a point clear of Torquay – after just two wins all term.
