FC Nordsjælland has added Dominic Oduro from Ghana to its Superliga Squad, following a successful trial period in Farum during the Spring break.

In January 2013, Dominic graduated fro m the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana and joined Manchester City from the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana.  During his time on Manchester City's books he continued his football development on loan at clubs in Belgium, France and Norway.

Danish football is also not unknown quantity for Dominic Oduro.  In 2013, he spent a loan spell at AGF, where he made a good impression.

It has been an interesting journey for the 21 year-old, since his days playing for his youth club, Manal FC as a six-year old in Accra, Ghana.  He joined the Right to Dream Academy on scholarship aged 12 and spent his years there developing as a player and student, impressing staff with his character and work ethic.

The opportunity to now push on with his professional football career at FCN is a chance that Dominic is relishing.

For Dominic Oduro, it is a dream come true to play for FCN: "I look forward to my debut for the club and to playing games with the FCN logo on my chest. I have played in Denmark before and I know the playing style well.

"FC Nordsjælland's way of playing suits me really well. My favorite position is right back, and I like to attack, so I can also play further forward on the right side.

"I am really happy about my new contract with FCN, which is a great club for developing young players.

"I look forward to demonstrating to the fans what I can do, and I'm ready to learn and improve myself as a player under a good coaching staff.

Dominic Oduro will wear shirt number 34 in FCN.
FC Nordsjælland's Head of Football Carsten V. Jensen says: "We noted Dominic Oduros qualities, already when he was playing for AGF a couple of years ago.  We saw his ability and we have now had the opportunity to follow him closely for a longer period, which has confirmed this positive impression, together with the references about him we got from AGF.

"Dominic Oduro clearly has qualities that we can use and develop in our environment. He will primarily compete for the right back position but he can also play further forward, says Carsten V. Jensen about the young Ghanaian.
