Ghanasoccernet.com understands Issahaku will be loaned to a European club to continue his development and mainly because of work permit issues.

The 17-year-old who signed for an undisclosed fee does not meet the requirement for a work permit in England.

This is because players playing regularly for their national team are almost guaranteed work permit and will be awarded a governing body endorsement.
