Ghanaian footballer Kelvin Ofori joins German club SC Paderborn 07

Ghanaian footballer Kelvin Ofori has completed his move from Bundesliga II side Fortuna Dusseldorf to rivals SC Paderborn 07 in the summer transfer window.

The 20 year old has signed a two year deal with SC Paderborn, and becomes the third Ghanaian after Bernerd Tekpetey and Christopher Antwi-Adjei to play for the club in recent times.

SC Paderborn announced they had signed the player on their official website on wednesday, Auguts 8th 2021.

“The SCP07 has signed a creative offensive player with a lot of prospects before the third match day of the second division season 2021/2022. The 20-year-old and 1.72 meter tall Kelvin Ofori comes to Pader from second division companion Fortuna Düsseldorf and has signed a two-year contract here. The Ghanaian will wear the number 14 on the SCP07 team,” wrote Paderborn.

Kelvin Ofori arrived in Germany in 2019 on trials and impressed Dusseldorf as they gave him a professional contract, but he struggled to break into the first team.

The foward will begin his Paderborn career on Sunday when they face Werder bremen in the Bundesliga II.
