Arsenal Kyiv Complete Dominic Adiyiah Deal

Ghana striker Dominic Adiyiah has completed a three-year deal with Ukrainian top flight side Arsenal Kiev, can exclusively reveal.

The 22-year-old joined the European outfit in February after his parent club AC Milan cancelled his one-year loan deal with Karsyaka.

He left the Turkish lower side over unpaid wages and lack of playing time.

The Kiev-base side never hidden their desire to tie the Black Stars attacker down to a long term-deal and now it appears both parties have reached an agreement with the former Reggina player putting his signature on the dotted lines.

“Yes I can confirm that Adiyiah has signed a three-year deal with Arsenal Kiev after all parties involved agreed to the terms,” local manager Desmond Frimpong-Manso told

“He is happy at Arsenal Kiev and hopefully his new found home will bring the best out of him.

“Getting regular playing time played a key role in his quest to sign a permanent deal.

“We need him to be active and playing regularly so that his services will be beneficial to the Black Stars,”

Adiyiah was voted the Most Valuable Player at the 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup.
