The 2013 U-17 WYC winner will play games with the B team of KuPS and had training sessions with the main team starting from next week in his bid to earn a one and half year deal at the team that finished 9th last season in Finland.

If he succeeds in the trial he will join the trio of Paul Onobi,Azubuike Egwuekwe and Gbolahan Salami at the club which will be his second in Europe after a failed stint with MS Ashdod of Israel.

He left the Israeli side six months after joining them after they were relegated to the second division with the Nigerian only playing in games for their youth sides.
