“This is a big step in my career and I have worked hard for it. I liked IFK from the first moment during my weeks there and felt it was a good club. I am full of expectations and will work hard to become someone who makes an impression in IFK Norrköping,” he added.
Kojo Peprah Oppong, an 18-year old and a center-back also joins on a four year contract after impressing on a short trial.
