Ghanaian youngster Amartey makes progress with Swedish giants Djurgården

Published on: 22 February 2013

Ghanaian midfielder Daniel Amartey is progressing steadily at Djurgården after joining the the Swedish giants just last month. 

Amartey, 18, moved to the Östermalm-based club from Ghanaian second-tier side Inter Allies and is already making grades.

His presence has forced Djurgården manager Magnus Pehrsson to shift former Asante Kotoko midfielder Yussif Chibsah to right-back.

Amartey played his first competitive game for the Allsvenkan side in mid-week as they shared the spoils in a 0-0 drawn game with Norrköping.

After failing to impress in last season's campaign, the Iron Stoves are hoping to put in a strong challenge for the league title in the 2013 season and Amartey is tipped to play a key role in their campaign.

He joins experienced midfielder Chibsah and Right to Dream Academy graduate, Godsway Donyoh who is at the club on loan from English giants Manchester City.
