Uruguayan Primera Division giants Sud America have announced the signing of Nigerian midfielder Bruno Ibeh after a short trial.

Ibeh who was first spotted by Manchester City scouts in 2015 was announced as a player of the 8th placed team yesterday evening, bringing his stay with fellow top division side Nacional to an end.

The 21 year old Nigerian midfielder who has been likened to former France midfielder Patrick Viera joined Nacional on recommendation from scouts of Manchester City in 2015.

A meniscus injury picked up in his first months with Nacional slowed down his progress, and lead to the team sending him on loan to second division side Torque.

His move to America Sud will no doubt put him in the full view of scouts of Man City who have been keeping a close watch of his progress in view of a move to the club in the future.
