‘He wanted the move’, Hammarby sporting director explains Amoo sale
Danish giants FC Copenhagen have reached an agreement to sign Nigerian midfielder, Akinkunmi Amoo from Hammarby of Sweden.
Hammarby initially rejected several new offers for their price, but they were forced to sell after FC Copenhagen matched their asking price of £4.5m.
Amoo has become a fan favorite at Hammarby, having scored 9 goals and provided 6 assists last season.
Speaking on the decision to sell the player, Hammarby’s sporting director Jesper Jansson admitted that Amoo himself wants to move to the Danish capital.
“Yes absolutely. He wanted the move, but we had a contract with him and that should be the right situation.”
“The right position for the player and the right position for us,” Jansson told Fotbollskanalen on Saturday.
Hammarby then accepted a Scandinavian record offer from Copenhagen for the midfield wonderkid and he is expected to be introduced to the fans in the coming hours.
