Super Eagles goalkeeper Dele Alampasu has been given a big chance to claim the first choice spot at Portuguese top division side CD Feirense next season.
The goalkeeper who is a part of the senior national team of Nigeria, who are presently in France in preparation for two friendly games against Corsica and Togo respectively, had a fairly successful time on loan to third division side Cesarense.
He is expected to sign a fresh contract with the club with his current deal set to run out this summer, and talks are already at an advanced stage for him to sign the dotted lines upon his return from international duties with Nigeria.
Voted as the best goalkeeper at the 2013 U-17 World Youth Championship, the 20 year old will replace Brazilian goalkeeper Pecanha who is expected to leave the Portuguese side this summer.
Pecanha’s expected departure won’t make Alampasu first choice shot stopper at the club, as he still needs to displace Vana who kept goal for most of CD Feirense’s game this season.
