Danish club Vejle Boldklub, have completed the signing of Ghanaian defender Jerome Opoku from English Championship side Fulham FC in the ongoing summer transfer window.
The 22-year old versatile defender is joining Vejle BK for the upcoming season in the 3F Superligaen.
Technical manager at Vejle Boldklub, Johan Sandahl, sees opportunities in the lanky defender, who is both dueling strong and good on the ball, and who has most recently been on loan to League One club, Plymouth Argyle.
“Jerome is well trained in Fulham and has his strengths in the duels, and at the same time he can lead the ball forward. We must have competition for the seats in the central defense, and here Jerome will be able to bid. At the same time, we believe that if Jerome has a good season in Vejle, then he can have a great future here. That is why we have also attached a buy-out clause,” Johan Sandahl said.
He added: Jerome is a player who will give himself 100 percent for every training session and in every single match. I welcome him to, and now the rest is up to him.”
For Vejle Boldklub’s new English player with Ghanaian descent, the loan to Vejle Boldklub is the next step in his career.
“I believe I can contribute here. The club has good facilities and a clear game philosophy. Both appeal to me a lot. I will let my coaching team judge my potential, but I am clear and ambitious on my own behalf. Vejle Boldklub is a club that has previously shown that it can release young players in its strong and competitive environment, and that reputation has also been a driving force in my choice.
“I look forward to pulling the red beautiful jersey over my head and fighting for a position and value here in Vejle Boldklub, says Jerome Opoku.
