Talk of football and Ghana was labelled as the 'Brazilians of African football." Not much has changed in terms of talent but the inability to develop the commercial and infrastructural aspects of the game has been a bane. With the said defect, most of the young budding talents have no option than to seek development outside of the country sometimes to places like Lebanon to say the least. Not so long ago players had the luxury of playing in the local league for long but it's all gone now. 
It comes as no surprise then to here young talents leaving the West African Coast to seek development elsewhere. 

Eric Eyiah, captain of the Black Starlets team at the 2017 Under 17 World Cup, has joined the talent exodus. The young prodigy has secured a 5 year deal with A.S Monaco in the French League. 

The French side known for the development of players also have an eye for mammoth sum sales. The departure of Thomas Lemar to Athletico Madrid has left the club bereft of attacking options and Eyiah likely suits the bill.

The former Charity Stars player got nominated for the CAF Youth Player award in 2017 for his performances at the World and African Cup games. Ghana claimed silver at the African games. 
Management of Charity Stars football club can now confirm that their player, Eric Ayiah, captain of the Black Starlets of Ghana who went to the just ended FIFA U-17 World Cup tournament in India has finally signed a Five (5) year contract with AS Monaco after medically proven fit
