Benjamin Fadi (born 16 March 1995) is a Ghanaian footballer currently playing for IFK Värnamo in Superettan on loan from Malmö FF as a forward.[2]

Career[edit]

Heart of Lions[edit]

Fadi started his professional career in his native Ghana at Heart of Lions in the Ghana Premier League. For his first season he played 13 matches and scored four times. For his second season he played five times and scored once in the premier league before leaving the club.

Malmö FF[edit]

On 20 December 2012 it was announced that Fadi would transfer to Swedish side Malmö FF. He signed his contract with the club on 16 March 2013, the day he turned 18 years old. This was due to the fact that he was unavailable to play competitive football for the club until his 18th birthday. Fadi signed a four year contract lasting until the end of the 2016 season.[3] Fadi made his Allsvenskan debut for Malmö FF in an away fixture against Syrianska FC at Södertälje Fotbollsarena on 20 June 2013.[4]

IFK Värnamo[edit]

Malmö FF confirmed on 21 February 2014 that Fadi would be on loan to Superettan side IFK Värnamo for the duration of the 2014 season.[5]
