“I have a plan that I feel good about. I like the way of working and the way of playing. In addition, I have a great ambition for myself to eventually play Eredivisie matches here on a structural basis.”
The defender who was born in Netherlands to Ghanaian parents started his footballing career with Spartaan '20 before moving to the famed Feyenoord academy in the summer of 2016.
He will be hoping to stake a claim in the team and improve his playing time which would be beneficial to his development.
