David Accam returns to Swedish football after six years in MLS. Hammarby has agreed with Accam’s current club Nashville SC and MLS on a loan for the 2021 season, with an option for another year.
When David reaches his highest level, he is a top player with extreme excellence in the form of his speed and goal danger, says Jesper Jansson.
With the loan of David Accam, Hammarby strengthens in the offensive line, and then mainly the outer position where the 30-year-old Ghanaian usually plays.
For the 2015 season, he moved across the Atlantic to the Chicago Fire in MLS, where regular goal production continued. After three seasons in “The Windy City”, he went on to the Philadelphia Union, then to the Columbus Crew, and the latest club address is Nashville SC.
– I know David very well both as a player and as a person, and if we can lift him to the level he has in him, we get a quality player who will contribute a lot both on the field and in the group. We believe he can add another dimension to our offensive game, and we are convinced that he will make a strong role model for our younger African players in particular. With the advantageous agreement structure, we have plenty of time to get David in shape, and also to evaluate the future option during the spring, says Jesper Jansson.
