a man holding a sign: Nigerian youngster joins top European club on a 5-year deal after shinning at FIFA championship

The teenage sensation who helped the Golden Eaglets to a fourth-place finish at the 2019 edition of the U17 Africa Cup of Nations will be hoping to follow the steps of Erling Haaland at his new club.

Tijani was named man-of-the-match in their 4-2 victory over Hungary at the World Cup – scoring twice in the process.

But, the Manu Garba-led team was dumped out of the competition in the Round of 16 after a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands.

It was earlier reported that Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has left Deportivo La Coruna for a three-year move to Cypriot side APOEL FC in an incredible move for the Nigerian international.

Uzoho actually joined Deportivo in January 2019, but the Nigerian goalie was not given active playing time and was loaned to Anorthosis Famagusta.

And after spending six months at Famagusta, the Nigerian goalie returned to Deportivo but was sent on loan again this time around to Omonia Nikosia.

The 21-year-old spent the whole of last season at Nikosia and was impressive in all the games he played for the side before he got injured.
