Fortuna Düsseldorf are set to complete the signing of Ghanaian youngster in the on-going transfer window, can report.

According to Sport Bild, English Premier League giants Manchester United wanted to sign Ofori but would loan him out to a smaller club.

However, the offer of playing first-team football in a major European league like the Bundesliga was too tempting to turn down.

"I think we won the race to sign a very talented player for us. We hope that he will make it as fast as possible in the team," Fortuna Düsseldorf sporting director Lutz Pfannenstiel said about Ofori.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate scored in extra-time on his competitive debut last Saturday in their 3-1 win over at Villingen in the DFB-Pokal
