Ghanaian youngster Kwabena Owusu has signed a five-year deal with La Liga new entrants Club Derportivo Leganes from Ghanaian lower division side Sporting Club Accra, the two clubs confirmed the deal on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old arrived at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Tuesday and joined the first team after catching the eye of Leganes' scouts while on loan at CD Toledo in the Spanish third-tier last season.

"Club Deportivo Leganes have signed 20-year-old Ghanaian striker Owusu Kwabena for five seasons from Sporting Club Accra," the Spanish club's statement read.

"After spending last season with C.D. Toledo in the Second division B with which he scored ten goals in both the league and the Copera competition and play-off of promotion to Second Division.

"The player joined yesterday, Tuesday, to the training of the first team and was put under the orders of Asier Garitano. Owusu stands out for his youth, quickness and precision with his shots at goal. He has a promising future being able to play both as the frontman and second striker," the statement added.

Owusu has become the latest Ghanaian to play in La Liga this season, after midfielder Wakaso Mubarak signed for Deportivo Alaves last month. It is unclear whether Owusu will make his debut this weekend as Leganes travel to RCDE Stadium to lock horns with Espanyol.
