Sporting Lisbon complete signing of Ghanaian winger Abdul Fatawu Issahaku on five-year deal

Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon have completed the signing of Ghanaian winger Abdul Fatawu Issahaku from Steadfast FC.

Issahaku, 18, joins the club on a five-year contract and has a release clause of 60 million in his deal.

The highly-rated youngster featured in all three of Ghana’s games at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, and both legs of last month’s 2022 World Cup play-off against Nigeria which the Black Stars won on away goals.

“I’m very happy to be here, it’s fantastic,” Issahaku told Sporting TV after putting pen to paper.

“There are many differences between the football I was playing and Sporting. It will make me grow more.”

He added, “The Ghanaians believe in me and I had opportunities very early on.”

“They made my dream possible and without that, I don’t think I would be here.”

The terms of the deal taking Issahaku from Tamale-based Steadfast FC, a club in Ghana’s second tier, to Sporting Lisbon are undisclosed.
