Ghanaian wunderkind Kwame Yeboah is currently in Germany to complete a medical so he can join Borussia Monchengladbach in the January transfer window.

The 19-year-old striker is one of the promising prospects in the Australian League where he plays for Brisbane Roar.

Brisbane Football Director Ken Stead explained the move in a club press release:

"As a club, we will not stand in the way of opportunities like this for our young players. It's a great achievement for Brisbane Roar to see so many former players excelling in top leagues overseas and as part of the Socceroos.

"This new environment will allow Kwame to continually improve his game and further his youth and senior national team ambitions in the future."

Yeboah, who has scored twice this season for Brisbane, has gone back to second fiddle since the return of Besart Berisha.

His first goal of the year was a brilliant 89th minute winner against Central Coast Mariners in Gosford in Week 5.
