Manchester City have signed 18-year-old Ghanaian Mohammed Abu, who will now immediately go on loan to Norwegian side Stromsgodset until the end of June 2011, a statement read on the club's official website.

The promising midfielder was spotted by City's recruitment network playing for Sporting Club Accra, having been developed by their Right To Dream academy. The youngster has recently been training at the Citizens' own academy and played for the club's Elite Development side in three pre-season games.

Stromsgodset's sporting director is former Norway and Sheffield United striker Jostein Flo, and Abu will now play for the Norwegian Premier League club in the town of Drammen, just outside Olso.

Abu concludes the Citizens summer transfer activity which includes the big-money acquisitions of David Silva, Yaya Toure and James Milner.
