Southampton Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Sam Amo-Ameyaw on a scholarship deal.

The 16-year-old winger joins the club from Tottenham Hotspur’s Academy, where he made ten appearances for the Under-18s side last season.

Amo-Ameyaw also adds to the pool of Academy players gaining international experience at the club, having represented England at Under-17s and Under-16s level.

The exciting youngster hailed the club’s clear pathway as one of the main reasons for choosing the south coast.

“In the past if you look at Southampton you see a lot of young players progressing through to the first-team,” said Amo-Ameyaw.

“I thought it’s a very good platform for me to progress through and hopefully I’ll be able to do just that at Southampton.

“I’m a good dribbler, I like to receive one-twos off others and get in the box and score. My aim is to get into the first-team as quick as possible, but first I’ve got to do well with the 18s and progress through to that next level.”

Head of Youth Recruitment Dan Rice added: “We are extremely excited and pleased to have signed Sam. He’s a player that was highly sought after and is regarded as one of the most talented players in his age group at this time.

“Sam is a dynamic attacking player with the ability to play off either wing. He’s a tricky and exciting player who possesses a high level of technique and skill which allows him to excel in one-v-one situations.”
