Striker to become NINTH Ghanaian player in the EPL

Dwamena will join six (8) other Ghanaian players in the English top-flight league.

Raphael Dwamena will become the ninth Ghanaian player in the English Premier if he completes his pending move to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The transfer of the 21-year-old is subject to a work permit and international clearance.

The Ghanaian striker has agreed personal terms with Chris Hughton's side and is now awaiting clearance to travel to the UK to complete his medical.

If the deal becomes a success, Dwamena will join (8) other Ghanaian players in the English top-flight league.

Here are the current Ghanaian players playing for English Premier League clubs.

Collin Quaner

We start the list with the least established German-born Ghanaian player in the Premier League, Collin Quaner.

The 26-year old defender joined Huddersfield Town in January 2017 for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-and-a-half year contract.

Quaner scored his first goal for the club on his debut against Rochdale in the FA Cup on 28 January 2017

He was hugely influential for Huddersfield as they made a dream start to their first ever Premier League season with a convincing 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park

Daniel Agyei

Agyei made his Premier League debut for Burnley last season against Liverpool at Anfield. He entered the fray as a substitute and played the final few minutes at Anfield in March this year.

The 19-year-old scored five goals during his 19 appearances for the Sky Blues.

Timothy-Fosu Mensah

Fosu-Mensah has recently spoken about his Ghanaian heritage and could link up with Raphael Dwamena.

Fosu-Mensah joined Crystal Palace on a season-long loan, reuniting with his former boss at Ajax, Frank de Boer. He made his debut for Palace two days later on 12 August 2017 against newly promoted Huddersfield Town, losing 3–0.

Jeffrey Schlupp

After only four league appearances for Leicester City in 2016–17, Schlupp joined Premier League club Crystal Palace for a reported £12 million. His first appearance for the club ended in defeat by three goals to nil to London rivals West Ham United.

Christian Atsu

In May 2017 Atsu agreed terms on a permanent switch to Newcastle. He signed a four-year deal at St James' Park and joined the Magpies for £6.2m.

Atsu was instrumental in helping the Magpies to return to the top-flight. The former Chelsea and FC Porto player has started both of Newcastle’s games so far in the season.

Daniel Amartey

Amartey joined Premier League side Leicester City on a four-and-a-half-year contract for a fee around the region of up to £6m. In his first season in his new country, Amartey featured five times as his team Leicester City won the Premier League title.

The Ayew brothers

The Ayew brothers joined the Premier League in 2015. The Ghanaian duo are at West Ham United and Swansea City respectively. Jordan Ayew returned to the top-flight after joining from Aston Villa while Andre Ayew is with the Hammers.
