Norwegian champions Stromsgodset are still counting their losses after losing influential Ghanaian youngster Bismark Adjei-Boateng to a long-term injury. 

The gravity of the loss is such that the club have signed three new midfielders to shore up the loss including – Ghanaian Mohammed Abu on a four-year-contract.

Adjei-Boateng, 19, damaged his knee last September and has not been able to get involved in action since and would undergo surgery in England which rule him out until June.

“The disappointment with Nana, that’s part of why we have included three new players in midfield,” Stroms Sporting Director Flo said.

“We talk all the time with Manchester City what is best for the players.”

The attacking midfielder who is a graduate of the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana, contributed 7 league goals in 17 games to stromsgodset’s title triumph last season and also scored important goals in the Uefa Europa League for the club.
