Portuguese topflight side Vitória Sport Clube have announced the signing of Ghana defender Maxwell Woledzi.
The 20-year-old centre-back arrives on a three-year contract (until June 2025) from FC Nordsjælland in Denmark.
Vitória SC holds 100% of the economic rights of Woledzi for €100,000 while Nordsjælland will be entitled to 25% from any future sale.
Woleddzi – the Right to Dream Academy of Ghana product after four seasons in Denmark – will start life in Portugal from the B side of Vitória SC.
“I chose Vitória because I believe it is the best step for my development, that’s why I’m here,” the budding defender uttered in his first words at the club.
“When I heard about Vitória’s interest, I went to research the club, its history, and I quickly realized that it is a club that bets on young players.
“I also looked at the example of Abdul Mumin, who is a player I really like, like an older brother, who has evolved a lot since he arrived in Guimarães.
“I also saw that they have very devoted fans, how they support the team and that will push me even more. I want the fans to see that I am a player who gives everything for this emblem,” he added.
Asked about the main characteristics that make him stand out on and off the pitch, Maxwell Woledzi highlighted his physical and technical attributes.
“I’m good with the ball at my feet, I’m a very physical player, very passionate about the game.
“I am a very committed player and I am ready to give everything for Vitória. I can’t wait to meet everyone and play in this jersey,” he stated.
