Chinedu Obasi has moved to Swedish side AIK on a short term deal for the 2016 season, after a short trial and a game for the Under-21s of the team.

Obasi scored twice in the game he played for the Under-21s which convinced the decision makers at the club of his fitness, after a long absence from football following his release by Schalke 04.

“It’s a great opportunity and also a great honour for me to be part of this fantastic club. I’m really looking forward to being a part of the AIK family and get to play in front of the fans” He said shortly after signing the deal.

The 30 year old will wear jersey number 7 for the Swedish side and could make his debut this weekend, if his International Transfer Certificate is received on time by the Swedish Football Association.
