Former Super Eagles striker Michael Eneramo has joined Saudi Arabian side Al-Ettifaq FC on a free transfer after the expiration of his deal with Turkish side Manisaspor.

31 year old Eneramo is not entirely new to playing in Saudi Arabia as he had a short stint with Al-Shabab in 2004, where he played 8 games with a goal to his name while on loan from Esperance of Tunisia.

He has played in Italy for the last seven seasons but injuries have slowed down his productivity on the pitch, as he has failed to stay fit since recovering from a serious knee injury picked up while at Besiktas.

The burly striker penned a year deal with the Saudi outfit, where he will be hoping to recapture the form that gave him ten caps for Nigeria from 2009 to 2011, which helped Nigeria beat Tunisia who were keen on having him play for them to his services.
