Nigerian Striker Leke James Signs For Norwegian Side Molde


25 year old Nigerian forward Leke James is back in Norway after two years in China where he defended the colours of second division side Chinese Beijing Enterprises Group FC.


Leke whose last team before moving to China in 2016 was Norwegian side Aalesund was today presented as a player of Molde with a confirmation that he has penned a deal which will expire in 2020.

” Leke has shown that he is a top grade top level leader. We are pleased that he is now here with us at Molde and we are confident that we will get him in the same good form as he was when he represented Aalesund. He is now fit and eager to play. Leke has a wonderful personality, which will provide a lot of positive energy in our team”, Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

During his time with Aalesund from 2012 to 2016 he was the top scorer of the team with 37 goals in 90 games. A form which made Chinese side Beijing Enterprises Group FC to splash around 20 million euros on him in 2016.
