Hans Adu Sarpei is a Ghanaian footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Bayer Leverkusen.
Sarpei was with VfL Wolfsburg for six seasons, where he extended his contract until 30 June 2007 in February 2004. The 30-year-old, who had been linked with Premiership side Fulham F.C., can play in either defence or midfield. He joined Wolfsburg in 2001 and made over 130 appearances for the Wolves.
On 18 May 2007, Sarpei moved to German Club Bayer Leverkusen on a free transfer and signed a two-year deal with his new team. During the 2006–07 Bundesliga season, Wolfsburg coach Klaus Augenthaler decided not to renew Sarpei's contract, with the Ghanaian delighted to seal a move to the BayArena.
After putting pen-to-paper on the two-year deal, Sarpei revealed to the German media giants Kicker: "It's great news for me. I am full of joy about the move and I am looking forward to playing international football with Bayer next season".
Sarpei is a member of the national team, and was called up to the 2006 African Cup of Nations and the 2006 World Cup squads. He is also called up for the Ghana national football team at the 2010 African Cup of Nations.
Sarpei who has a German passport, moved to Germany from Ghana with his parents, when he was a child. His older brother Edward is a former Bundesliga player for 1. FC Köln and currently playing for BP Worringen.
