Belgium top division side Club Brugge have pulled a transfer coup by agreeing a deal with Colin Edwin FC to sign the captain of the Nigerian U17 team Samson Tijani, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Tijani was voted the Most Valuable Player ( MVP) at the recently concluded WAFU B Africa U17 Cup of Nations Qualifiers which Nigeria won by beating Ghana 1-0 in the final and as expected top clubs immediately pushed to sign him.
Club Brugge beat all comers for his signature and a deal has been agreed for the midfielder to join the team once he turns 18, which will be a year after the U17 World Youth Championship.
Rated as probably the next big thing to happen to Nigerian football, the deal we reliably gathered was brokered by Norwegian based Nigerian agent Atta Aneke few weeks after the conclusion of the WAFU B Championship in Niger Republic.
Blessed with the ability to control possession and also win tackle, Tijani was at the heart of the dominant display of the Nigerian team at the tournament with as he was ever present in Owngoalnigeria.com ratings of top performers after every game of the Nigeria U17 team.
