Ghanaian midfielder Kalif Alhassan has pledged to help American second tier side Minnesota United to greater heights after completing his switch to the American second tier side.

Alhassan joined Minnesota United on Sunday after spending the last four seasons with the Portland Timbers in MLS.

“I’m so happy to join the Minnesota United organization,” said Alhassan.

“I have heard so many good things about the club and their fans. I’m excited for the season to begin and start working towards the Soccer Bowl.”

Alhassan played in each of Portland’s MLS seasons, only playing with the reserves for part of 2013.

He played 6,126 minutes in 110 appearances and scored seven goals in league play, as well as one goal in the CONCACAF Champions League against Guyana club Alpha United.

He has also been involved with Ghana’s youth national teams, having played for the U-17 and U-20 National Teams.

Alhassan is currently training with the rest of the club in Arizona. This is the first of two preseason trips for United. The other will take place in March, as the Loons travel to Brazil.
