Biography


Prince played as a youth for AVV Zeeburgia and was a product of the Ajax youth system. Although signed as a future prospect by United by manager Craig Levein, Prince went on to play a major role in the first team almost as soon as he had arrived.

He collected a runners-up medal in the League Cup final in March 2008 and then won a Scottish Cup winners medal in 2010. He was also awarded his first Ghana international cap whilst at United.

After four successful years at Tannadice he left when his contract expired in May 2011 and then signed for Watford.
