Dele Aiyenugba has returned to his former club Kwara United where he began his professional football career in 1998 before joining Enyimba two years later.
Kwara United have completed the signing of former Super Eagles goalie ahead of the 2020/21 Nigerian Professional Football League season.
At the just concluded NPFL season which was canceled due to the continuous threat of the pandemic, Kwara United aimed to finish among the top clubs.
The club's management under the leadership of Kumbi Titiloye and Bashir Badawiy is now in top gear to bolster the squad ahead of next season.
Aiyenugba began his professional career at Kwara stars in 1998 before his brilliant performances then made ways for him to join Enyimba in 2001.
He won four NPFL titles at Enyimba in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2007.
The goalie also lifted the CAF Champions League twice in 2003 and 2004 and also two African Super Cup in 2004 and 2005 and left the People's Elephant in 2007 for a big move to Bnei Yehuda.
At the national team, the 36-year-old made 17 appearances for the Super Eagles and last played for the three-time African Champions in the painful 2-2 draw against Guinea in Abuja in November 2011 which confirmed Nigeria's failure not to qualify for the 2012 AFCON in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
"Kwara is my home and I am here to give my best to Kwara United and also sports loving people who are in this state," Aiyenugba explained.
