Daniel Ebenezer Kwasi Agyei (born 1 June 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Burnley.

Career[edit]

Burnley[edit]

Agyei came through the ranks at AFC Wimbledon, scoring 35 goals for the club's under-21 team in the 2014–15 season to draw the attention of a host of top clubs, reportedly including West Ham United, Chelsea and Fulham.[3] Agyei eventually signed for Burnley, on a long-term contract to initially play for the club's development squad.[4]

After impressing for Burnley's development squad in the 2015/16 season and making his senior Burnley debut in a pre-season friendly against Bradford City, Agyei was made available for a loan move by manager Sean Dyche.[5] Coventry City beat off competition from several clubs in League One and the Championship to secure the loan signing of Agyei on a five-month loan deal.[6] Agyei was handed the number 9 shirt by Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray upon arrival at the Ricoh Arena.[7]

Agyei made his professional league debut against Bradford City on 20 August 2016, handing Coventry City the lead with his first goal in professional league football in a 3–1 defeat at Valley Parade.[8] He then scored his second goal of the season in a 2–0 home win against Rochdale.[9] In October 2016, he scored Coventry's fastest ever goal at the Ricoh Arena after just 19.5 seconds to set a new record in the 3–1 victory over Northampton Town in the EFL Trophy.[10] In January 2017, he returned to Burnley following the expiration of his loan, he made a total of 19 appearances for the Sky Blues, netting five goals.[11]

He made his debut on 12 March 2017 coming on in the 88th minute replacing Scott Arfield against Liverpool.[citation needed]

On 31 August 2017, Agyei joined League One club Walsall on loan until January 2018.[12] He made a total of twenty-one appearances in all competitions scoring five goals before returning to Burnley.[13]

On 18 January 2018, Agyei joined League One club Blackpool on loan until the end of the 2017–18 season.[14]
