Teenager Johnson Gyamfi is pleased after joining Championship side Peterborough United.
Gyamfi, 19, who has been a free agent since June 2021 impressed on trials with the English second tier club and he will now start his career with their Under 23 after penning a two-year deal.
“I am actually Ghanaian-Italian, I was raised in Italy for 10 years, joined Leicester City at the under 11 age group and left following my first year at Leicester. I had a couple of injuries which hampered my progress so I am delighted I am here now and I can get games under my belt and show what I can do,” Gyamfi stated.
“When my agent spoke to me about coming to the club on trial I was absolutely delighted. I spoke to some of the players and that reaffirmed what I already thought that this was the perfect place for me to be. It was a no brainer. The coaches here are very good and the fact that the club is in the Championship made it a very attractive option.”
“The fact that the under 23s are in a league means it will be competitive and there will be regular football and it is something that I am really enjoying. The games come thick and fast, and I just want to go out there and enjoy it and help the team,” he added.
He has two other brothers namely Dennis Gyamfi and Pierluigi Gyamfi who were all previously at the Leicester City Academy.
