VIDEO: Twum “ready to take step forward” at IK Start

Young Ghana midfielder Isaac Twum is eager “to take a step forward” after completing his switch from Inter Allies to Norwegian side IK Start.

Start, who are back into the elite division, are seeking to tie up loose ends by making quality signings into their squad.

They officially unveiled Twum, 19, on Friday. He has become the second Ghanaian at the club after 24-year-old attacker Denny Antwi.

The youngster led the local Black Stars team to win the Wafu Tournament in Cape Coast and guided Allies to escape relegation in the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League.

Twum, who was heavily linked with a move to local giants Asante Kotoko prior to his IK Start transfer said club’s website:

“Everyone has taken me in a good way. I already feel like home. Now I will only do my best to help the team in the future.

“I’m good at the ball and like to both dribble and shoot. I am an attacking midfielder and I can play as a defensive one too.”

He added: “I think I did well in the [Wafu] tournament which IK Start saw me and thought they should sign me. So I’m here also to help move the team forward.

“For me, in Ghana it’s been tough but we’re managing to get to the top. If you’ve taken the thing as a job, that’s what you depend on so you need to work hard for it.

“I’m ready to take a step forward and have worked hard to reach that far. It has not been easy for me in Ghana, but now the dream is about to come true.”
