18 year old Nigerian forward King Udoh is back at Serie A champions Juventus after a highly successful loan spell at Virtus Lanciano in the Primavera A league.

Udoh scored 12 goals in 32 games during his six months loan with Virtus Lanciano and he is back at Juventus where he will be hoping to be a part of the Primavera team for next season.

He joined Juventus from AC Reggiana Jugend in the summer of 2011 as a 13 year old after impressing scouts of the team during a youth tournament.

Comfortable as the main striker or from the wings he is eligible for Nigeria and Italy at international level but he is yet to be capped by any of the above mentioned nation.

However he could possibly go the way of Stefano Okaka and Angelo Ogbonna by choosing to represent Italy instead of Nigeria after spending most of his life in the land of the Azzuris.
