Budding Ghana midfielder Kamal Sowah has completed a permanent move to Belgian giants Club Brugge, Joy Sports can exclusively reveal.

The Ghanaian, a Leicester City player since 2018, has been the subject of intense transfer rumours in the past few weeks, especially because of his form for the English side this pre-season.

But on Monday, the deal for a €9 million transfer plus add-ons was agreed, which is set to make the 21-year-old a record transfer for the Belgians.

Sowah spent the last three-and-a-half years on loan with City’s sister club OH Leuven in Belgium. Last season, he played in all 34 league games, scored eight and made six assists.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers did not include the budding talent in the matchday squad for either the Community Shield or the opening Premier League game of the season against Wolves.

“There have been one or two options from clubs who have come in for Kamal so we just need to assess that,” he said last week.

“It was my first chance really to see him. I wanted to bring him back in for pre-season, with him having done so well in Belgium and seeing his talent.”

Sowah joined Leicester from Right To Dream Academy after the two teams played a friendly in England.
