After beginning his career with Unistar AS in his homeland, the 19-year-old was most recently with Portuguese club Portimonense SC, who earned promotion to the Portuguese top flight after winning the LigaPro championship last season.

A holding midfielder, Otou has not made a first team appearance for the Algarve-based outfit, although has one cap for the Black Stars at Under 20 level.
