Bismark Adjei-Boateng (born 10 May 1994), commonly known as Nana, is a Ghanaian footballer who currently plays for Colorado Rapids as a midfielder.[3]

Career[edit]

Adjei-Boateng was signed by Manchester City F.C. in 2012, and immediately loaned alongside Enock Kwakwa to the Norwegian Tippeligaen club Strømsgodset Toppfotball, as the pair were not eligible for a UK work permit. The midfielder made his debut for Strømsgodset on 12 August 2012 in a 4-0 loss against Tromsø IL. He scored his first and second goal for the club in the match against Sogndal IL on 16 May 2013,[2][4] and played an important part in the team that won the 2013 Tippeligaen league title, with 17 matches and 7 goals. After the good spell at Strømsgodset, he renewed his contract with Manchester City, and was loaned out to the Norwegian club again.

However, after receiving an ankle injury during training in September 2013, he was kept out of action until June 2014.[5] He came back and helped his team secure 4th place in the 2014 Tippeligaen, with 11 matches and 2 goals. In February 2015, Manchester City agreed to a third loan spell for Adjei-Boateng, this time for the whole 2015 season.[6] He signed another full-season loan with the Norwegian club on 5 January 2016.[7]

Adjei-Boateng signed for Major League Soccer club Colorado Rapids in January 2017.[3]
