Medeama SC stars Kwasi Donsu and Ibrahim Yaro have joined USL side Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC on a loan deal, pending USL Championship and USSF approval.
Donsu, 23, was a top performer in Ghana’s Premier League, scoring 22 goals in 39 appearances during the last two seasons. Yaro joins Switchbacks fresh off a December call-up to the Ghanaian U23 National Team for a U23 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
The 22-year-old has been used primarily as a center back but has also played as a right back and holding midfield in his career.

“We are very excited to have Donsu and Yaro join us for the 2019 season. We had the advantage of seeing them live with Medeama prior to their signing and it was clear that both are intense competitors who will immediately give the group a needed edge,” said Switchbacks Team General Manager Brian Crookham who traveled to Ghana last September.
