Nigerian Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has moved to Cypriot club APOEL FC on a three-year deal.
Naija News Understands that the Nigeria international spent the last two seasons on loan at Cypriot clubs Anorthosis Famagusta and Omonia.
Uzoho actually joined Deportivo in January 2019, but the Nigerian goalie was not given active playing time and was loaned to Anorthosis Famagusta.
With his new permanent deal, the 21-year-old will now remain in Cyprus with APOEL who are the most successful club in Cyprus with 28 league title wins.
In another Nigerian move, former Golden Eagles Super Eagles captain Samson Tijani has joined Austrian champions Bull Salzburg on a five-year contract.
Tijani captained Nigeria’s U17 to the U17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and later the FIFA U17 World Cup all in 2019.
