Usman Muhammed who played for Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics has completed a permanent transfer to Portuguese second division side Uniao Madeira on a two year deal from Associacao Desportiva Sanjoanense.

Rumoured to be on the radar of several teams in Europe, his move to the Portuguese second division side according to a source close to the player, has already been agreed since his transfer to Portugal early this year.

The midfield maestro moved to ambitious Portuguese side Associacao Desportiva Sanjoanense on a two year deal from troubled Nigeria Professional League side FC Taraba in February on a free transfer.

“ The move to Sanjoanense was just a decoy to free him from FC Taraba, he was already cleared to move to Uniao Madeira, and that has now come to pass” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.

His move to the Portuguese side coincided with when the Nigeria U23s were neck deep in preparations for the Olympics, and that kept him away from club duties with the team.

20 year old Muhammed leaves the team without a single appearance to his team and at Uniao Madeira, he will be reunited with his Dream Team VI teammate Shehu Abdullahi who joined the team last summer.
