Second tier MLS club Miami FC officially confirmed the signing of Ghanaian striker Kwadwo Poku from New York City FC.
“We are thrilled to be bringing on a player like Poku onto our roster,” said Mauro Pederzoli, Technical Director for Miami FC.
“Poku adds a physical presence to our attack and we believe he will help us achieve our goals for the fall season.”
Poku came through the ranks at American club Georgia Revolution. He also played for Atlanta Silverbacks but New York was his best club where he played 32 matches and scored five goals.
This resulted in him getting capped for the Black Stars and made his debut against Canada in October 2015.
However moving to the Second Tier is a downward transfer in the career of Poku.
“This is a move that really makes sense for us,” NYCFC sporting director Claudio Reyna said in a club release.
“Miami came with a significant offer that will give us options in the summer transfer window and beyond. We know and understand that at this stage of his career playing regular first team football is very important to Poku.”
