BREAKING: Former Flying Eagles Captain Joins Dutch Side Roda JC Kerkrade

Abduljelil Ajagun who was recently deemed surplus to requirement by Greek side Panathinaikos has pitched tent with Dutch top division side Roda JC Kerkrade on a one year deal, the club has announced on their official website.

Delighted by his capture the technical director of the Dutch side Ton Caanen described Ajagun as a fast and offensive midfielder who also guarantees goals, a quality he feels makes his capture a coup by the modest Dutch club.

The former Nigeria U-17 star who also featured in two U-20 World Youth Championship and captained the 2013 set has been at Panathinaikos since 2013 and caught the eyes of Roda when he scored against fellow Dutch side PSV Eindhoven in the Europa League.

Predominantly a central midfielder he scored 14 goals for Panathinaikos in the 58 games he played for the Greek side and at Roda he has been handed the jersey number 14 for the new season.
