Frederick Opoku signs for Danish side HB Køge

Ghana youth winger Fredercik Opoku Yamoah has completed a move to Danish lower-tier side HB Køge.

The 20-year-old has joined the Blue and Black lads on a three-year contract after playing 15 matches halfway through the 2018 USL season with Penn FC in the USA.

Last season, Yamoah had a season-long loan stint with the same side (Penn FC) where he played 15 matches.

“There is no doubt that this cooperation opens some doors for us that we did not previously have access to,” HB Koge Sports Director Per Rud says:

“Fredrick has left a really good impression here and we have also seen him play in the United States. He brings some speed, has fast feet and is not afraid of challenging his opponent.”

“He has power in his run, works both ways and can use both legs, giving us some opportunities on both sides,” he concluded.

Yamoah was a member of the Ghana U20 squad that failed to qualify for the 2017 Africa Youth Championship.
