Ghana’s youth star Clinton Antwi has made a short trip within Denmark to leave FC Nordsjælland.
The 20-year-old defender has been loaned out to Esbjerg FB in the lower division after joining last season from Ghana’s famed academy Dare To Dream.
"I need playing time in relation to my development, and therefore I am happy with the opportunity I now get in Esbjerg," Antwi said.
I’m humbled and privileged to join the @esbjerg_fb family on a season loan from @fcnordsjaelland. I’m super grateful for the opportunity that both clubs have given me, excited to smashsmart on and off the pitch with the team.

"I look forward to the challenge and my clear ambition is to fight for a place on the team and do my part so that the club can return to the Superliga. I believe this is the right thing for me,” he added.
Meanwhile the Nordsjælland’s Sporting Director Jan Laursen is confident the left-back is heading to a good environment.
"We still have a strong belief in Clinton, but we agree that he needs more fighting time on the field to continue his development, fulfill his potential and come back even stronger," Laursen said.
"He gets good opportunities for that in Esbjerg, and we know he will be in good hands with our former coach Ólafur Kristjánsson.
"Clinton is a sympathetic young man with a big heart both on and off the field, and at the same time he has a very high work ethic and always acts professionally in any context. We look forward to following him in Esbjerg,” he concluded.
