Italian-born Ghanaian youngster Claud Adjapong has signed a new five-year deal with Serie A side Sassuolo.
The 19-year-old right back was promoted to the senior team of the Neroverdi last summer and was able to cement his place in the squad with some outstanding performances.
Adjapong’s initial contract was expected to end this summer but after series of talks, the teenager has extended his deal up to the summer of 2022.
Inter Milan, AC Milan, Napoli and several tops teams in Italy were on his heels this window but now he will continue his development at the Mapei Stadium.
Adjapong is one of the few players who went through the youth development at Sassuolo and has been able to make it to the first team.
He made 9 appearances in the league last season and scored a goal against Cagliari. He also featured once in the Coppa Italia and played three times in Sassuolo’s Europa League campaign.
