Chorley have swooped for former Ajax youth player Rene Osei Kofi

The utility player could feature in the squad for this weekend’s trip to Alfreton Town.

After impressing in training during the past month, the 25 year-old who has played for Aris Limassol, in Cyprus, and Almere City, in Holland, has signed a contract with the Magpies.

The Ghanaian-Dutch footballer is known for his pace and is naturally a right back with the ability to play in a number of positions.

He said: “Chorley are a massive club at National League North level. If selected I can’t wait to get out there and play for the Magpies. I like what I’ve seen so far and delighted they’ve given me this opportunity to progress in my career.”

Manager Matt Jansen said: “He’s looked very sharp and fit in training - impressing everyone. We have offered him a short term deal and will hopefully become an asset for us looking ahead.

"During his career he’s played most of his games at right back, although I see him further up the field.

"Without question he’ll help us and he’s hungry for his chance. With his quality, he’ll bring a lot to the football team.”
