Ghanaian duo Kwasi Okyere Wriedt and Derrick Köhn have started their careers with Dutch top-flight side Willem II, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The two players started their deal with the Dutch side on Wednesday after ending their stay with German giants Bayern Munich.

Ghanasoccernet.com exclusively revealed last month that the two players signed pre-contract agreements with Willem II to end their stay with the second team of Bayern Munich.

With their permanent contracts starting on 1 July, they have officially started their stay with the Eredivisie side.

Wriedt and Kohn signed three-year contracts each with the Dutch club last month as they seek to play regular football with a top league in Europe.

With the third tier league in Germany ending on Saturday, Bayern Munich II were keen on using the two players for the final match of the season to help them win the league title.

But the two clubs failed to reach an agreement to extend the stay of the duo until Saturday so they have officially started their contracts with the Eredivisie side.

"Today, July 1, 2020, the contracts of the brand new Willem II duo will start," the Dutch side said in a statement released on Wednesday night.

Wriedt, 25, and compatriot Köhn, 21, signed their permanent contracts that will run until the summer 2023.

The two players, born in Germany to Ghanaian parents are expected to feature prominently for the Dutch Eredivisie side.

Wriedt clinched the Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich after making two appearances for the senior side enroute to their championship success.

The striker, 25, has been capped twice by Ghana at the international level.

His relatively unknown compatriot is a Derrick Köhn, who is a defender, featured regularly for the Bayern Munich II side.

Köhn joined Bayern Munich in 2017 from Hamburg but failed to make a single senior appearance.
