Ghana international, Kwesi Appiah has joined AFC Wimbledon permanently after the League One side secured his services from Crystal Palace.
The pacey striker who made his name in Ghana’s 2015 African Cup of Nations held in Gabon was loaned to AFC Wimbledon by Crystal Palace after failing to command starting eleven spot.
The 26 year old was then loaned to Norwegian club Viking FK and has had spells with Aldershot, Yeovil Town, Notts County and Cambridge United whn he joined Crystal Palace.
He scored three goals in seven games for AFC Wimbledon before a leg breaking injury saw him ruled out of the season.
After signing permanently for the League One side, Kwesi said:
“I really loved my short spell at AFC Wimbledon a few years ago and I am really hungry to do well after a couple of frustrating seasons. I know the people at the club well and I look forward to building a great relationship with the fans again.”
AFC Wimbledon manager, Neal Ardley who was happy with Kwesi acquisition as he has bolstered his attacking options for next season in their quest to make it to the Championship said;
“This is such a good signing for the club. We tried several times to bring Kwesi back, but after he took the Africa Cup of Nations by storm with Ghana I thought it could never happen. Goals are the hardest thing to create and score so Kwesi will hopefully help us in that department. He has been getting fit and sharp playing in Norway and all being well, he will be ready to hit the ground running. We are delighted with this signing and I’m sure the fans will be too.”
We at GhanaMansports.com wish Kwesi Appiah well as he writes another chapter in his footballing career.
