Much travelled 28 year old English born Nigerian left back Korede Aiyegbusi has joined Shakhter Karagandy of Kazakhstan, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.

Korede Aiyegbusi has travelled the world to fulfil his dream of becoming a professional, making the Londoner the best-known footballer you’ve never heard of.

Brought up near Highbury, a young Aiyegbusi dreamed of playing for Arsenal but ended up beginning his career in Major League Soccer, before taking in Finland, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden and Iran.

A few die hard Football Manager fans may have come across the left-back but Aiyegbusi does not mind that he’s a relative unknown in his homeland.

Before moving to America at 17 in an attempt to achieving his lifetime ambition of being paid to play, he had never been associated with any club in England.
