Valour FC announced Monday that it has signed Ghanaian winger Solomon Kojo Antwi to a contract.

Antwi, 19, joins Valour from the Glow Lamp Academy in Ghana where he has been a top youth prospect for several years. He’s also a player that coach Rob Gale had been tracking for some time.

“Solomon is a player that we identified in last summer’s transfer window, and we are delighted that the visa process and contracts are now finalized,” Gale said.

“As a U-20 Ghanaian international and at just 19 years of age, he has huge potential that we hope we can help him realize in Winnipeg.”

The winger was offered his first professional contract by Belgian club Gent in February of 2019 but due to complications securing a visa, he was not able to sign. At the national level, Antwi has played with the Ghana U-20 team.
