The 19-year-old passed his medical with the club on Thursday and wrapped up the deal on Tuesday. Ajanah has already begun training with the first team and handed the number 21 jersey.

He may make his debut in the Europa League when OFK Titogard Podgorica travel to CSKA Sofia in the first match of 1st qualifying round on July 9.
