Slovenian club with their latest Nigerian signing

Slovenia 1. SNL outfit Olimpija have expressed delight at being able to secure the services of Nigeria youth international Nathan Oduwa from Tottenham.

The former Nigeria U-23 star on Tuesday left Tottenham Hotspur for a fresh challenge as he joined Olimpija on a three-year deal as confirmed by the European club.

The club in a statement on its website wrote: ""This is a great day for our club. We have set ourselves on a big football map. We are glad that we were able to attract such footballers like Nathan who offers both speed and technique.

"We will all have to support him in the right direction to develop his huge potential. We are very pleased to have succeeded in this venture.

"Tottenhamova Academy is currently one of the best in the world and in Oduwo we believe we have gotten a quality footballer."

All through his stay at White Hart Lane, the 20-year-old failed to make a first-team appearance for Spurs but spent time on loan in England at Luton Town, Scottish giants Rangers, Colchester United and most recently Peterborough United.

The 20-year old midfielder is expected to link up with his new team-mates in Turkey on Wednesday where he will meet his fellow Nigerian Blessing Eleke.
