Dundee United have announced signing of Ghana’s under-20 African Cup of Nations winner Mathew Cudjoe.
Exciting attacker Cudjoe, 18, has signed for the Tannadice club – subject to a work permit – after leaving Ghanaian side Young Apostles.
Cudjoe is highly-rated, having previously trained with German giants Bayern Munich and his arrival is seen a something of a coup.
Courier Sport exclusively revealed United were tracking Cudjoe in August and he later arrived in Scotland for a training stint at United.
Now the technically-gifted star has landed a dream move to Scotland and will add a touch of flair to the United attack when his move is rubber-stamped.
“We are delighted to welcome Mathew to Dundee United,” United sporting director Tony Asghar told the club website.
“He is a young and exciting talent that we can’t wait to watch develop further over the coming seasons.
“As a club we are continuously aiming to attract talented players – both in our local area, in markets we are well established in and in those that have been less explored.
“We have proven we are a club that knows how to develop and give opportunities to young players.
Mathew Cudjoe given platform by Dundee United ‘to hone his skills’
“He is a player we can have high hopes for. We believe we can give him the platform to hone his talent and hopefully have a very strong career.
“Through opportunities created by the rules surrounding Brexit, we have looked at different markets we can look to gain a foothold.
“It has been a great experience working with the leaders at Young Apostles FC to conclude this deal.”
