Ghana midfielder Isaac Twum has joined Norwegian side IK Start from Ghana Premier League team Inter Allies, both clubs have confirmed.
The 19-year-old captained Allies to beat the drop last season on final day following their stalemate against Hearts of Oak and his fine form did not go unnoticed.
Allies' vice president Delali Eric Senaye believes the move is the best for Twum and will help his career development.
“This is a good move for Isaac Twum and we (Inter Allies) wish him all the best in his career development,” Senaye said.
Start gained promotion to the Ligaen from the first division, after finishing second last season and Twum, who has become the second Ghanaian at the club aside Denis Antwi, is expected to play a crucial role in midfield for Mick Priest's side as they seek to maintain their top-flight status.
Twum made his debut appearance for Ghana in October against Saudi Arabia in an international friendly. He was also the captain of the Black Stars B squad that won the 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations.
