Major League Soccer (MLS) side Los Angeles Galaxy have announced the signing of Ghanaian winger Joseph Paintsil.

The 26-year-old has joined the American outfit on a four-year deal after ending his stay with Belgian Pro League outfit KRC Genk.

LA Galaxy reportedly paid about $9 million for Paintsil to acquire the services of the Ghanaian from Genk.

Paintsil has 61g/35a in 228 professional outings and has been with Genk since 2018. He also had loans at Ferencvárosi (Hungary) and Ankaragücü (Turkey).

Paintsil has made 14 international appearances for Ghana. He was a member of their 2021 and 2023 Africa Cup of Nations squads.

"We are pleased to add a player of Joseph’s quality to the LA Galaxy," head coach Greg Vanney said.

"Joseph is a dynamic winger with and without the ball who possesses the capacity to change games instantly. We look forward to integrating him into our group quickly."
