Pimpong joins Viking

Ghana striker Razak Pimpong has joined Norwegian side Viking.

The 24-year-old moves from Danish club FC Copenhagen on a four-year contract.

The transfer deal, worth about US$ 700,000 to FC Copenhagen, will keep the forward at the club until the end of the 2010 season.

"We're happy to have completed the deal for Pimpong," Viking sports director Egil Ostenstad said.

"He has demonstrated his potential as a world class player while playing for his national team and his previous clubs.

"We are confident the arrival of Pimpong will improve our fortunes in the upcoming season."

Pimpong is expected to partner Nigerian Peter Ijeh in Viking's attack when the league starts on 9 April.
