Reports out of Ghana have New York Red Bulls preparing to sign forward Samuel Tetteh from sister club Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian Bundesliga.
According to an exclusive report from SPORTSworldGhana.com, Tetteh is joining the Red Bulls “to sign a three-year deal.” The story was confirmed as well by Joy Sports. The 24-year old Ghana senior international has been on loan with fellow Austrian first division club LASK Linz since January of 2018 and was set to become a free agent. Salzburg has reportedly still been negotiating a new contract with the player.
Tetteh began his career in the Ghana Premier League with West African Football Academy, a program founded by Dutch club Feyernoord Rotterdam which took over the facilities of the dissolved Red Bull Ghana. He moved to Liefering (Red Bull Salzburg’s reserve side) in 2016 and scored 12 goals in 26 appearances across 18 months. However, Tetteh suffered a meniscus injury in 2017, which resulted in several months of rehabilitation. After not breaking through in the first team, he was loaned to LASK. He scored 15 goals in 66 matches and contributed to the club’s run to the Round of 16 in the most recent Europa League. The Accra native returned to Salzburg in July following the completion of his loan.
