Ghanaian winger Abdul Fatawu Issahaku has described his move to Leicester City as the best place for him.
The 20-year-old has joined the English Championship side on a long-season loan deal from Portuguese side, Sporting Lisbon until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.
Speaking after completing his move to the Foxes, Issahaku expressed his delight and added that it is the best place for him to continue his development.
“I’m so happy. This is an amazing moment for me, I’m happy to be here. For me, from looking at Leicester and how I felt about the coach, here is the best place for me,” he told the club website.
“This was the best moment for me to join Leicester. I chose them because I think they can grow me and help me mature. [Enzo Maresca] told me about the plans he has for me and how he wants me to play – how he wants to help me in my football,” he added.
Issahaku joins the Foxes and is subject to league and international clearance.
The 19-year-old arrives at the King Power Stadium having been left out of the Sporting’s first-team plans this season.
He was part of the Black Stars squad that took part in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Issahaku was also with the Black Meteors in Morocco for the 2023 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations.
