Nigeria youth international midfielder Kingsley Michael will join Serie A side Bologna when they resume for pre season training later in the month.
Michael joined the team in January but had to return back to Nigeria as his visa expired, but he is now processing a long stay visa which will see him have the chance to push for a spot in the main team.
Already his childhood friend and youth team counterpart Orji Okonkwo has broken into the first team of the Serie A side after a remarkable time with the youth team following his transfer last summer.
The duo will be hoping to reignite their partnership in pre season training with the Serie A side, with Okonkwo already tipped to have a big season by coach Roberto Donadoni who handed him a start against champions Juventus last season.
They were part of the all conquering Nigerian U-17 team of 2015 alongside the likes of Victor Osimhen, Lukman Zakari, Joel Osikeel, John Lazarus, David Enogela among others.
