Former Nigeria Under-17s and 20s forward Chidera Ezeh, has joined Portuguese second division side Portimonense on loan from FC Porto for the rest of the season.
He was today presented as a Portimonense player for the rest of the season during the second division side league game against Penafiel, a sign of how he has grown since last season when he had his breakthrough with the U-18s of Porto.
” He has joined Portimonense on loan for the rest of the season, am happy for him after the disappointment of missing out on a chance with the first team during pre season, he will be a hit for Portimonense” His agent Babawo Mohammed told Owngoalnigeria.com.
18 year old Ezeh, signed professional terms with the Estadio Dragao outfit last season, after spending the last two years training with the team following his exploits for Nigeria at the U-17 World Cup in 2013, which Nigeria won.
Last season, Ezeh was a revelation for the Under-18s of Porto, emerging as one of their top scorer as they romp to the title in his first season, and could have been a part of the pre season activities of the first team were it not for a surgery on his shoulders.
Comfortable as a forward or winger, he can also play from the flanks where his close dribbling skills,pace and trickery can cause havoc in the opposition half.
