Belgian club Waasland-Beveren have acquired the services of Ghana international Thomas Agyepong from Manchester City.

The winger joins Adnan Custovic's roster on a season-long deal with an option to buy at the end of the campaign.

He replaces compatriot Nana Ampomah, who left Beveren for German Bundesliga outfit Fortuna Dusseldorf last month.

"Waasland-Beveren have again added an attacking reinforcement to the team" the Belgian fold announced on their official website.

"Thomas Agyepong, 22, is loaned from the English superpower Manchester City.

"Waasland-Beveren also stipulated a purchase option on the Ghanaian flank attacker."

Agyepong joined City from Ghanaian outfit Right to Dream Academy in 2015, but a lack of first-team opportunities at the Etihad Stadium has forced him out on successive loans in search of playing time.

The Accra-born spent the 2015-16 campaign with Dutch side FC Twente before joining NAC Breda for the next two seasons.

Last term, he was farmed out to Scottish side Hibernian, where an injury predicament limited him to only nine league appearances.

A fully-capped Ghana international, he was a member of the Black Stars' squad which suffered a Round of 16 elimination at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, featuring in the team's first and last games, against Benin and Tunisia, respectively.
