Highly rated Nigeria teen star Chidera Ejike popularly referred to as Nigerian Iniesta has arrived Spain with his test team Valerenga.

Ejike is on trial with the Norwegian side, and followed them to their camp in Spain where a final decision on his potential signing will be made by the technical crew of the club.

18 year old Ejike has played in one test game for Valerenga since joining them last week for a trial, which is expected to last for a month.

Known for his pace, skills and passes, he had a trial with Liverpool last year but failed to bag a deal with the Premier League outfit due to issues surrounding a loan destination, as he is not eligible for a work permit to play in England.

A proposed loan move to St. Truiden didn’t work making it imperative for him to return to Nigeria, where he played for Supreme Court in the Nigeria National League (NNL), before joining Premier League side Gombe United at the start of the ongoing Nigeria Professional League (NPFL).
