A member of the Nigeria U20 team of 2016 has made the step up in his career by taking his trade to Europe after sealing a deal with Stumbras of Lithuania, Owngoalnigeria.com understands.
Gavi was very much the man doing the dirty job in the midfield for the Nigerian U20 team that failed to qualify for the African Youth Championship after losing 4-3 on aggregate to Sudan.
Quick, strong and good in using the ball, the 19 year old is among the new players added to the squad of the team, who were 7th in the log at the end of last season in Lithuania in the top flight league called A Lyga.
Stumbras will take part in the Europa League when the tournament resumes and Gavi will be hoping to make an impression right from their first game against Cypriot side Apollon Limassol.
His coloured hair earned him the nickname Paul Scholes, who also has similar hair colour and plays in the same position like the Nigerian during his playing days for Manchester United and England.
