Ghana international, Ebenezer Ofori, has agreed to join MLS side, New York City FC, on a one year loan from German side, VfB Stuttgart, with an option to buy.

The deal was agreed on Friday with a contract set to be signed pending a medical.

Alex Akummey, CEO of Ofori’s former team, New Edubiase, and representative of the player, confirmed the deal to Citi Sports.

“Yes, he has agreed to join NYC FC for one year with an option to buy. He’s currently in Germany working on his US visa and will fly out for the medical as soon as it’s granted,” Akummey told Citi Sports.

The 22-year old has only played 9 minutes of football this season for Stuttgart, after playing a key role in their promotion to the top flight last season.

Ofori made his debut for the Black Stars at the 2017 AFCON in the 3rd place playoff against Burkina Faso.
