In January of 2018, Kudus, along with two other colleagues, Ibrahim Sadiq and Gideon Mensah, made the move from the Ghanaian Right to Dream Academy to the Danish club Nordsjaelland. Kudus had joined the Ghanaian academy when he was just 12 years old.
Only three days after he turned 18, Kudus made his official debut for Nordsjlland in a match that they lost 2-0 to Brøndby IF.
As a striker, he was on the field from the opening minute of play until halftime, when he was substituted.
As a result of his debut, he moved up to ninth place on the all-time list of the club’s youngest players to make their debut.
