- Maduka Okoye has joined Dutch League side Sparta Rotterdam on a two-year deal
- The Super Eagles shot-stopper moved to the Castle as a free agent this summer
- Okoye made his senior debut for the Super Eagles in their 1-1 draw against Brazil in 2019
Nigerian goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has joined Dutch League side Sparta Rotterdam on a two-year deal from German League side from Fortuna Dusseldorf.
The 20-year-old shot-stopper joined his new team as a free agent after his contract with his former club was not renewed.
Okoye until last year was eligible to play for both Nigeria and Germany but the goaltender decided to pitch his tent with the West African nation.
He was in goal for Gernot Rohr's side in their 1-1 draw against South America side Brazil in an international friendly in 2019.
The Super Eagles star made just 14 appearances for his former club last season and has also conceded a total of 52 goals in 34 appearances - keeping clean sheets just eight times in the process for Fortuna Düsseldorf reserve.
Meanwhile, after sealing the deal, the Dutch club posted on their official page that: "With Maduka we bring in great talent.
"He was in the interest of several clubs from different countries, but he believes he can take the next step at Sparta. We believe he can be of value to this club and are happy that he signed here.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles winger Moses Simon has expressed his desire and love to play for Premier League side Chelsea claiming that the Blues is his dream club.
Although the Nigerian forward is currently happy at French side Nantes, but Moses Simon will not hide the fact that he loves to play for the Stamford Bridge landlords.
He even recently signed a new four-year deal with Nantes which will make him stay at the side until 2024 unless the Blues come for his signing.
And since the age is on his side, Chelsea may be looking for his signature in future depending on the manager that will be in charge.
