STEVE Morison said Sutton United had tracked Nana Boateng for some time after the attacker was unveiled as a free transfer signing following his release by Millwall. 

Boateng, 21, has signed a two-year deal with the U’s who were relegated from League Two to the National League last season. 

Boateng had been with the Lions from the age of seven. He made one senior appearance, as a substitute in a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace in the third round of the FA Cup in January 2022. 

Boateng played eight times on loan for Woking last season before another loan spell in the National League when he joined Solihull Moors in January. 

The versatile attacker, who can play out wide or through the middle, helped Solihull into the play-offs, coming on as a substitute in the eliminator round and semi-final. 

Boateng came on in the final and scored in the penalty shootout, but with the next spot-kick, U’s manager Morison’s former Millwall team-mate Byron Webster clinched promotion with his now-iconic penalty. 

”We’ve had our eye on Nana for a while and we’re delighted to give him the platform to push on in his career after a great time at Solihull last season,” Morison said on the club’s website.

“He’s a tricky winger who likes to get the ball in to the box and we are looking forward to seeing his pace and seeing him torment opposition defences.”
