Belgian top-flight side KAS Eupen have officially confirmed that they have extended the contract of Ghana youth goalkeeper Abdul Manaf Nurudeen for two more years.
Manaf, 21, is a Ghana youth international and manned the post three times for the Black Satellites in the 2019 U20 AFCON.
The promising glovesman joined Eupen from Aspire Academy Senegal in summer 2017 and has gone ahead to become a regular goalkeeper for the Eupen reserves and has warmed the bench a number of times for the first team.
KAS Director General Christoph Henkel believes Nurudeen has what it takes to eventually become the first choice goalkeeper for Eupen in the near future.
“Abdul Manaf is a very talented and reliable goalkeeper. Even if it has not yet been used in our first team, it is an integral part of our professional squad. With his talent and commitment, he will continue to develop with us in the next two years. We are happy that Abdul Manaf will continue to be part of our team in the future.”
Manaf is tipped to become a Ghana number one goalkeeper at the senior level in the future as he has grown through the ranks playing for the Ghana U17 and U20 teams.
