As exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com two days ago, former Sunshine Stars of Akure forward Okiki Afolabi has joined Atletico Talleres de Cordoba on a one year deal.

Okiki left Sunshine Stars with 13 goals to his name in the Nigeria Professional Football League and despite claims of ownership from two other parties, he was signed as a free agent by the Argentine side.

The forward was unveiled today by the Argentine side, two months after he left Nigeria for Argentina, where he spent time on trials with Racing before moving to Talleres.

As reported by Owngoalnigeria.com, there was no word from the club on his other Nigerian counterpart, Tonbara Tiongoli who went to Argentina with him.

The duo started trials with Talleres but it appears only Okiki was considered good enough by the club after his fine performances in the three test games he played for the team.
