English League One side Fleetwood Town FC have confirmed the signing of former Barcelona youth team captain Godswill Elohor Ekpolor.

The club announced his capture and subsequently unveiled him on their official website, with the 21 year old Nigerian given the jersey number 29 shirt.
Fleetwood Town also confirmed that the Nigerian could feature in tonight’s Emirates FA Cup First Round tie against Southport.

He spent 11 years at Barcelona before he was released by the club this summer without a single first team appearance to his name.

Comfortable as a full back, centre back or right winger, he missed out on a chance of representing Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics, where Nigeria won bronze.
