Sporting Sign Kwakwa
Sporting CP have completed the signing of Ghanaian midfielder Enock Kwakwa from Manchester City for £400k. This is Sporting’s tenth signing of the season, and probably will turn out to be the one of best value.
The 19-year-old signed for City at the end of the 2011/12 season from Ghana’s Right To Dream Academy. He spent the 2012 and 2013 Norwegian seasons on loan at Tippeligaen side Stromgodset, making 34 league appearances and scoring one goal before returning to the Etihad. His current deal was due to expire at the end of the season, and Sporting have nipped in and signed a good prospect on a comparatively cheap fee compared to the potential he holds. Sporting fans will be delighted to have secured a player with such a bright future.
Kwakwa will join when the January transfer window opens on a 3 and a half year £1.8k p/w deal, which is £1.3k more than at Manchester City. He is said to be delighted to sign for a club like Sporting, and hopes he will thrive with some of the other young players such as Bruma and Zaha.
