Club Africain

Following Tema Youth's relegation from the top tier of Ghanaian football, the club decided that they would sell all their players to make way for new players. Mensah moved to Tunisian side Club Africain. He left the Tunisian side without playing a single professional game for them following allegations of a heart attack and salary problems which saw him terminating his contract.

Baník Ostrava

After failing to obtain a contract with Atlético Madrid, he trialed with Czech side Ostrava but almost failed due to language problems. Despite the problems he has impressed enough for the club to offer him a contract. However, his former club Africain took the matter to FIFA and delayed the transfer. Another factor is the late issuance of the International Transfer Certificate. However, he signed for the club eventually and was handed the no.6 shirt. He made his debut against FK Jablonec as a substitute in the 74th minute in which his team suffered a 1–0 defeat.


Mensah signed for Haugesund in January 2016 on a three-year deal.


Mensah signed for Slovenian club Aluminij on 27 January 2017.
