Former Nigeria U-20 international Nurudeen Orelesi is back at Skenderbeu Korce of Albania two years after leaving them for Metalurh Zaporizhya of Ukraine.

Skenderbeu Korce announced on their official website that the 26 year old has returned to them on a two year deal, a deal they said was swiftly done as the player was willing to return.

Orelesi spent two years in Ukraine making 31 appearances for Metalurh Zaporizhya scoring once from his role as a left full back but never truly established himself as the team first choice left full back.

He was a member of the Nigeria U-20 team to the World Youth Championship in Egypt in 2009 where he made four appearances scoring once in the team’s 5-0 thrashing of Tahiti.

Known for his overlapping abilities and crosses he moved to Albania in 2010 starring for Dinamo Tirana before moving to Skendebreu Korce where he spent three seasons.
