Agyekum will initially start life in Austrian football as a cooperation player at feeder club FC Liefering in the second division.
Red Bull Salzburg and WAFA SC have built a solid partnership over the years and that has seen the Ghanaian side now transfer as many as six young players from their talent hub.
The likes of Samuel Tetteh, Amankwah Forson, Majeed Ashimeru, Daniel Owusu and Gideon Mensah are five other players who moved from Sogakope to Mozart.
