Manchester City have finished the signing of Kwadwo Baah (18) in a deal worth a reported £300k. The forward will be loaned back to Rochdale, and if not he will join on a free in the summer. Per Sam Lee that is the plan -
City paying £300k for Kwadwo Baah, who’s out of contract at the end of the season. Staying at Rochdale til summer, then he’ll go on loan next season most likely. Also, Stoke going to sign D’Margio Wright-Phillips on a free, his deal is up in the summer too. Stoke had wanted Baah.— Sam Lee (@SamLee) February 1, 2021
Baah became a small viral sensation after doing this with Crystal palace some years ago-
He is set to be the Jayden Braaf direct replacement, who left this window to Udinese of Serie A.
He is a pretty good player and is already doing well in the League One for Rochdale.
His playing with Rochdale had increased his worth and attention as he has shined in time given to him.
This fantastic goal is evidence of that.

Playing for Whyteleafe in the Isthmian South East League last season, Baah’s enjoyed a breakthrough few months in the pro game this season.

Tidy piece of business for City and one that will not cost much. A real wait and see signing.
Very promising player who is also an English national. Ticks all the right boxes. Best of wishes for Baah. Hopefully he can succeed at City.
