Nicholas Opoku joins Udinese

Ghanaian defender Nicholas Opoku has completed his move to Italian side Udinese.

The former Club Africain defender put pen to paper on a 4-year-deal worth €1.5 million.

The 20-year-old joined Club Africain in 2017 from Ghana Premier League side Berekum Chelsea, and has made 2 appearances for the Black Stars.

He joins fellow Black Stars teammate Emmanuel Agyemang Badu in Udine, after the latter rejoined the side after a loan deal in Turkey last season.

“Opoku is a defender that has been highlighted in the last year,” said Udinese Sporting Director Daniele Pradè.

” At the orders of Mr. Velazquez he will have the opportunity to put his characteristics to good use “.

He made 18 league appearances for Club Africain last season providing one assist.
