Ghanian born defender Nana Ofori-Twumasi could be on his way to crossing the divide from Posh to Cobblers if rumours are to be believed. The full back, who began his career in the Chelsea youth team and went on to captain them, looks like he could follow his old boss Gary Johnson to Sixfields, possibly in time for Tuesday night’s game at Chesterfield.
Ofori-Twumasi, 20, was on loan with Dagenham and Redbridge for a month in 2009 and joined Boro on a free transfer last summer. The defender, despite his roots, has represented England at Under 16, Under 17, Under 18 and Under 20 level.
He’s seen chances at London Road to be limited so far though and could well be the first new face of Johnson’s regime.
