30 year old Nigerian midfielder Chigozie Shaloze Udoji has joined Norwegian outfit Lillestroem, according to a statement by the club.

He is joining them on a free transfer from Chinese side Qingdao Jonoon, where he spent the year 2016 and made 25 appearances with six goals to his name.

The signing of Udoji brings to three the number of Nigerian players at the club as he joins Innocent Bonke and Ifeanyi Matthew at the Norwegian side.

Udoji represented Bulgaria at U-21 level in 2007 in a friendly game against Greece U-21 scoring two goals in the process, but FIFA later ruled that he is ineligible to represent them in future games.

FIFA ruled he could only represent Nigeria, but the former CSKA Sofia midfielder has not been capped by Nigeria at any level, since the ruling by the world soccer body.
