NYCFC continue to expand their inaugural squad. The expansion side have announced a transfer in which they received Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Poku from the Atlanta Silverbacks of the NASL, where he scored two goals last season.
Poku’s rights where acquired from the Seattle Sounders in exchange for a second round draft pick in 2017.
Poku, 22, is a versatile midfielder who will help a midfield that has been improved tremendously over the past few weeks, with the signing of Mix Diskerud.
Poku seems excited for the new chapter of his career at NYCFC.
Joining New York City FC is an amazing opportunity to take my career to the next level in the MLS. I know that being part of an ambitious club like New York City FC will help me keep improving at this important stage of my career
