Swedish club Ostersunds FK have announced the signing of Nigerian defender Onahi Abraham Ogbu.

Ogbu, who has been on trial at the club, signed a two-year contract with Östersunds FK.

The 21-year-old joined OFK from Nigerian club Tiki Taka FC International.

The young left-back, reflecting on his move to his new club, told the club’s website: “It will be incredibly fun to become part of ÖFK now. I come to a club where the team spirit is among the best I have experienced. I look forward to taking the club back to Allsvenskan and I’m prepared to put all the power I have into it.”

Sporting director Stefan Lundin, who was delighted to have the player at the club, said: “Ogbu has been in training with us for a few weeks and made a good impression both as a person and as a player. We are getting a full-back who is secure on the ball with a good passing game that will be interesting to follow going forward.”
