Agu moves to Estádio do Dragão from Megapp FC in Nigeria in 2010 playing for the U19s before he eventually signed a professional contract and made two appearances for their first team but was a key player for the B team who play in the second tier of Portuguese football.

The Benin-born star was loaned out to Club Brugge, Vitória de Setúbal and Bursaspor due to his lack of first-team opportunities but the midfielder already began training with his new teammate under manager Ivo Vieira's instructions.

Mikel has made seven appearances for Super Eagles so far.
