Danish side HB Køge have confirmed the transfer of Nigerien striker Victorien Adebayor to Ghana Premier League outfit Legon Cities FC.
Adebayor joins the Royals on loan for the rest of the 2020/21 season.
“In this way, we meet the wishes of Adebayor. For personal reasons, he has a strong need to be close to his family for the time to come. We have listened to that. We have come to the conclusion that if he does not thrive here because he does not have “himself with”, it is the right solution, “said HB Køge’s director Per Rud.
“Adebayor’s first time in Denmark has not been easy. There has been corona. The paperwork with visas and work permits has been a long time coming. We have not yet succeeded in bringing his girlfriend to Denmark. At the same time, he has been hit by injuries, which has meant that he has not been given the desired playing time. Now he gets a period in a club where he is safe. At the same time, he can get in shape and, in addition to football, focus on family life. ”
Before switching to HB Køge on a three-year contract, Victorien played Adebayor for Inter Allies where he emerged as the top scorer in the Ghana Premier League.
“We have now put together a plan together with Legon Cities FC. It must ensure the framework for Adebayor’s development. He is an exciting player and we still believe in the model with players from Africa and that we can integrate them. Effiong Nsungusi is on the verge of his breakthrough in HB Køge, and Frank Assinki, with whom we have a long contract, is currently playing for the Ghanaian U20 national team at the Africa Cup of Nation. They have shown that they can handle the transition from Ghana to Europe, ”Per Rud added.
