Nigerian youngster Kingsley Michael extends contract with Bologna

Serie A club Bologna have officially announced that Nigeria U20 international Kingsley Michael has signed a contract extension. 

Michael's new contract will see him remain at the club until the end of the 2023/24 season if both parties come to an agreement. 

The 19-year-old was part of the Golden Eaglets squad that went on to win the FIFA U17 Cup in Chile back in 2015 under head coach Emmanuel Amunike.

He was to then be promoted to the Flying Eagles and featured for the team when they won the Round of 16 against Senegal in the 2019 U20 World Cup.

Michael has not yet made his official debut for Bologna although he was on the bench when the side took Cagliari and Udinese during the 2017/18 season. 

During his loan spell with Perugia last season, Michael made approximately 25 appearances and scored one goal.
