Highly rated Nigeria youth international Samuel Chukwueze has officially signed professional terms with Spanish La-Liga side Villarreal as first reported by this football portal.
Chukwueze trained with the youth team of the La-Liga side early this year but couldn’t sign professional terms as he wasn’t up to the age of 18 pegged by FIFA as the age to make international transfer.
The exciting forward who can play as a winger on either flanks posted pictures of his contract signing in the presence of his mother and his agent at the club secretariat, and sources close to the player confirmed to Owngoalnigeri.com that the deal is for five years.
He will spend the first few months of his stay at the club with the youth side from where his progress will be monitored for possible promotion to the first team.
At Villarreal he will team up with his ex U17 mate Jack Ipalibo who joined the team last summer, and had a very good season with the U18s which has lead to his promotion to the B team this season.
