The midfielder from Accra, Ghana, started out playing for International Allies in Ghana at the age of 16. He caught the eye of Magnus Pehrsonn, who was on a scouting trip in Africa in preparation for his upcoming managerial job at Swedish first tier club Djurgårdens IF. When Magnus Pehrsonn was installed as manger he secured the signature of the Ghanaian the day he turned 18 years of age. The Ghanaian made his Allsvenskan debut in March 2013 against Helsingborgs. He made 23 appearances in his first season and was ranked as the 10th best player in the division by Swedish newspaper Expressen. His strong showings at such a young age peaked the interests of many of Europe's top clubs including Schalke and Liverpool. In July 2014 he signed for Danish side F.C. Copenhagen. In his first season he made 23 appearances and scoring 3 goals. The 2015/16 season would be a unique one as the combative midfielder would pick up not one but two major trophies in two different countries with two different clubs. The first would be the Danish Superliga with F.C. Copenhagen as he would appear 15 times for the Danish side before joining Premier League side Leicester City in January on a 4 and a half year deal as The Foxes would go on create sporting history by winning the Premier League the very same season. In the 2016/17 season he became a first team regular following the departure of N'Golo Kanté.
