Ghanaian youngster Manfred Osei Kwadwo has extended his contract with German side Kaiserslautern as his existing contract is yet to expire, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The 20-year-old signed a two-year contract extension on his existing deal which will leave him at the Bundesliga II side until June 2018.
Osei Kwadwo’s existing contract was supposed to have expired in June 2016 but his potential for the side prompted them to extend the deal before it expires.
The Red Devils are convinced of the potential of the 20-year-old German-Ghanaian – so far even though he has played just eleven minutes in the second tier league.
“Manfred Osei Kwadwo has already shown in his first year that he has got good characteristic of a professional,” Kaiserslautern sporting director Markus Schupp said.
“We are confident in his athletic development and we are delighted that we will continue to support Manni here.”
The German-Ghanaian played his first senior game for Kaiserslautern shortly before the end of 2014 in the away game at TSV 1860 München (1: 1) when he came off the bench in the 79th minute.
Otherwise, the 1.71 meter tall, attacking midfielder is tipped for bigger things in future.
In 13 games in the Regionalliga West the right-footer scored three goals.
