The Porcupine Warriors youngster inked a four-and-half-year deal with the Royal Club after impressing the technical team following a short trial

Belgian giants RSC Anderlecht have announced the signing of Asante Kotoko striker Dauda Mohammed on a four-and-half-year deal in an undisclosed fee after impressing head coach Rene Weiler, the club have confirmed.

The 19-year-old arrived in Belgium in December and had a two-week trial with the club after his performance in the 2016 Ghana Premier League caught the eye of the Royal Club's scout in Africa.

Dauda scored eight league goals in 20 league appearances for Kotoko, including a hat-trick against Techiman City, to finish last season as the club's joint topscorer with captain Amos Frimpong.

Kotoko after a poor start to the 2016 season, languishing at the bottom of the table after six games, came back strongly to finish fifth with 46 points.

Dauda's performance with Kotoko and Ghana U20 team earned him a call-up into Ghana's squad that played Rwanda in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations last qualifying game but head coach Avram Grant left him out in his final 23 players for the tournament.

He has now become the third Ghanaian player at Anderlecht, after Black Stars defender Frank Acheampong and former Dreams FC right-back Emmanuel Sowah Adjei.
Goal understands that Dauda have been sent to train with the club's youth team until the end of the season.
