Ghanaian legend Tony Yeboah’s nephew Kelvin Yeboah has joined German Bundesliga side FK Augsburg.

The 22-year-old attacker has been snapped up by Fuggerstädter on loan until the end of the current season from Italian Serie B club Genoa CFC.

Augsburg revealed that they also secured a buy option for Yeboah who is a very promising player.

“I knew that I only wanted to move to FCA after my discussions with the coach and club,” Kelvin told the club’s official website.

“The exciting and positive way that the coach likes to play matches my style, so I’m pleased that the deal is now complete.

“I want to play a part in a successful second half of the season and we want to play attractive football for the fans. I can’t wait to play in the WWK ARENA,”

Kelvin was born in the capital city of Ghana, Accra before his parents relocated to Italy and he has played for the European country at under-21 level.

He could make his debut for Fuggerstädter when they take on Borussia Dortmund on Sunday in a Bundesliga game.
