Ghana’s Ebenezer Ofori has joined German giants VfB Stuttgart in a deal that will run until summer 2020.
The 21-year-old defensive midfielder, who can also operate at left full-back, is currently on duty with Ghana at the African Cup of Nations and will link up with his new club at the end of the continental tournament in Gabon.
Since moving from Ghanaian club New Edubiase United to Sweden in the 2013/2014 season, Ebenezer Ofori made 101 competitive appearances for Swedish side AIK Solna.
At VfB, the 1,72 meter tall left-footer will wear the number 22 jersey, the Bundesliga side announced.
VfB Sporting Director Jan Schindelmeiser said: “In Ebenezer Ofori, we have secured the services of a young player, who has the potential to develop further, has already broken into the Ghanaian national team and gathered experience in European football in Solna.
“He is an agile, industrious and gifted left-footer, who we have had an eye on for quite some time. Ebenezer can play in a number of midfield positions, or at left-back, which is a combination which was very important for us in our assessment of the player.”
