Nigerian youngster set for a ₦750m move to the Belgian top-flight

The Jupiler League has been home to Nigerian players (past and present), and the trend is set to continue as one of the country’s finest youngsters is on the move

Belgian Jupiler League side Royal Antwerp have completed the signing of highly-rated Nigerian youngster Alhassan Yusuf from Swedish club IFK Göteborg.

According to transfer market guru Fabrizio Romano, Yusuf will join Antwerp from Goteborg for a fee in the region of 1.5m euros (₦750m) after both clubs reached an agreement. The 20-year-old only left Nigeria for Goteborg in 2018.

But with his contract set to expire next year, the Angels have decided to cash out on his services. Yusuf has played nine times for Goteborg in the Swedish top-flight this season, notching just a solitary assist.

Although his natural role at the club is a defensive midfielder, he has also played as a central midfielder and sometimes on the flanks.

The youngster made 76 appearances in his time with the Swedish side, scoring two goals and registering nine assists.
