Aliyu Abubakar who won the U-17 World Youth Championship with the Nigeria U-17 team of 2013 has joined Georgian side FC Dila.

Kaduna born Aliyu completed his move to the team over the weekend after a summer of speculations following his refusal to extend his deal with Finnish side KuPS.

Aliyu defended the colours of KuPS last season with 25 league appearances to his name but the former MS Ashdod defender refused to take up the option of a further year renewal proposed by the club.

20 year old Aliyu is a midfielder but can also play in central defence or right full back, which was the role he played admirably well for KuPS last season.
