Austrian giants Red Bull Salzburg have completed the signing of Ghana international Samuel Tetteh from WAFA SC.
With five goals, Tetteh, a winger has been the leading scorer for the Ghana Premier League side in the first half of the 2015/16 season.
The 19-year-old’s strong performances have earned him consistent invites to the senior national team by head coach Avram Grant since debuting for the side in an international friendly against Congo in September 2015.
Tetteh, who featured for Ghana at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup, completed a successful medical Tuesday before signing to a four-year contract ending summer 2020.
“WAFA SC wish to announce that our striker Samuel Tetteh has signed a four-year contract with Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg,” the Ghanaian top-flight side announced in a series of tweets Wednesday.
“The 19-year-old leaves after scoring five goals in the first half of the Ghana Premier League season. In between that, he featured for the Black Stars in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Samuel Tetteh becomes the third Ghanaian youngster on the books of Red Bull Salzburg – Lawrence Ati-Zigi, Raphael Dwamena and David Atanga who has just been loaned out to German second-tier side FC Heidenheim.
