Ghana's No. 1

Former Ghana U17 captain Eric Ayiah set to join Gil Vicente in Portugal

Former Black Starlets captain Eric Ayiah is on the verge of joining Portuguese club Gil Vicente from AS Monaco. 

The 22-year-old will be joining the Primeira Liga side on a permanent deal after passing his medical on Wednesday.

Eric Ayiah spent the last four years in France, playing for the second team of AS Monaco as he struggled to break into the first team.

The former Ghana youth star was a revelation at the U17 Africa Cup of Nations in 2017 in Gabon, helping Ghana finish runners-up.

And in the same year led the Black Starlets to a quarter final finish at the World Cup in India.

He earned a move to France to join Monaco but competition for places in the senior team made it difficult to feature for the first team.

He, however, played a series of friendlies and was part of the team's pre-season this summer.
