Ghanaian Mohammed Abu has signed with Manchester City.
The 18 year-old will now go on loan to Norwegian side Stromsgodset until the end of June 2011.
A dynamic, tough-tackling midfielder, Abu recently trained at the Academy and played for the Elite Development side in three pre-season games. He was spotted by the club's recruitment network playing for Sporting Club Accra, having been developed by their Right To Dream academy.
Stromsgodset's sporting director is former Norway and Sheffield United striker Jostein Flo, and Abu will now play for the Norwegian Premier League club in the town of Drammen, just outside Olso.
