Born in New York City with Ghanaian descent, Musah spent the early years of his life in Italy before joining Arsenal’s youth academy in 2012 before moving to Los Che a year ago.
As reported by Diario AS last month, Musah is the first ever Englishman to play a competitive match for Valencia and has made big impressions having spent last season with the B team.
The central midfielder, who will celebrate his 18th birthday next month, is one of the club’s highest rated players and is an indicator of the club’s greater emphasis on youth players.
The exits of club captain Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin to Villarreal from Los Che were confirmed this summer and with no replacements signed, Musah has been handed his chance.
Musah has featured in six of the club’s first seven La Liga matches, starting five.
