🇳🇬 Nigerian duo sign for Gent

Belgian top division side KAA Gent have scooped Emeka Chinonso and Adewale Oladoye from Water FC.

Gent made the announcement on social media ahead of facing Standard Liege on Sunday in the league. The pair are believed to have caught the eye at the U20 FIFA World Cup in 2019.

Gent Statement:

KAA Gent has given Adewale Oladoye and Chinonso Emeka their first professional contract.

“Both youngsters, born in 2001, were trained by the Nigerian Academy Water FC, where they were noticed by ex-Buffalo Egu Augustine and Marc Clarysse.

“Adewale Oladoye (August 25, 2001 – pictured right) is a powerful defensive midfielder. Chinonso Emeka (August 30, 2001) is a big, fast striker.

“They will have the opportunity to mature with the reserves team, and now and then already train with the first team,” the brief concluded.
