Official: Manchester City youngster Yaw Yeboah joins FC Twente on loan


FC Twente have today announced the signing of Ghanaian youngster Yaw Yeboah from Manchester City on a season-long loan deal.

19-year-old Yeboah, who can play as a winger or striker, spent last season playing for Lille in France, but only managed to play 174 minutes for the Ligue 1 side. A move to the Eredivisie, a league famed for developing young talent, should hopefully see the prospect get more game time.

City signed Yeboah from Ghana’s Right to Dream Academy in 2014, and he impressed at last year’s FIFA U20 World Cup, scoring goals against Austria and Argentina. Last month, Yeboah claimed that Pep Guardiola had immediate plans for him, but at his age a work permit was never likely to happen, and he will continue his development in the Netherlands.
