Ghana international Caleb Ekuban has secured Italian Serie A promotion with Genoa for the next season's campaign.

Genoa have been promoted back into Serie A after only one year in the second division, joining Frosinone in the step up from Serie B.

 
The Grifone needed to get a better result than Bari today in order to secure automatic promotion as one of the top two.
 
Coach Alberto Gilardino’s side defeated Ascoli 2-1 at Marassi with Mattia Bani and Milan Badelj goals, while Bari were held to a 1-1 draw in Modena.
 
Genoa are the oldest football club in Italy, founded in September 1893, and naturally dominated the sport in its early years with nine titles before Serie A became the current format.
 
They were relegated in penultimate place last season after a chaotic campaign that saw them taken over by American investors 777 Partners.
 
Ekuban climbed off the bench to feature thirteen minutes for Genoa in their win over Ascoli this afternoon.
 
He has managed to score one goal and provided two assists in 12 league matches for Genoa this season so far.
