The 23-year-old was previously also on the books of Palermo and Hellas Verona.

A fully-capped Ghana international, the midfielder, who first represented the west Africans at the 2015 Fifa U20 World Cup in New Zealand, has not been called up to the senior side since a disappointing performance on debut in a 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Egypt in 2017.
