Maxwell Woledzi, a highly-touted teenager from Ghana, has officially moved to Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes after the club reached an agreement with Danish team Nordsjaelland.
After a deal was struck between the two clubs last week, the 20-year-old completed his medicals earlier this week and signed his contracts.
After three years at the club, he leaves Nordsjaelland, having played 33 games with the first squad, scoring one goal and assisting one more.
The dynamic player’s move to Portugal is anticipated to provide a platform for him to continue growing.
At the Don Afonso Henriques Stadium, Woledzi, a client of Kwasi Siaw’s HC Talent Group, signed a long-term contract committing him to the team through 2025.
25% of any future transfer fees for the 20-year-old will go to Nordsjaelland.
He joins fellow Black Stars Gideon Mensah and Abdul Mumin as the most recent Ghanaian to play for a top-flight Portuguese team.
Woledzi is anticipated to play a significant role for Vitoria in the 2022/23 season following an outstanding 2021/22 season in Denmark that saw 24 appearances in all competition.
