Pascal Kpohomouh says he is feeling good after putting pen-to-paper on his first professional contract with Southampton. The Ghanian native, 17, joined the Saints from Manchester City this summer after being monitored by the club’s scouts and has made an impressive start to life for the Under-18’s side.
Kpohomouh has been rewarded with his first professional deal, penning a contract until June 2021, and he is looking forward to continuing his development as a footballer over the years to come.
