Super Eagles winger Nnamdi Oduamadi has told Completesportsnigeria.com exclusively that he joined Turkish First League club Sanlıurfaspor because of the assurance he got from the President of the club.
The 24 year old Nigeria international disclosed that the prospect of seeking a fresh challenge away from his second home, Italy, lured him to Turkey.
“At first, I was a bit frightened, but I got a lot of assurance from the club and I’m here to give my best to the team,” the player informed Completesportsnigeria.com.
“I am excited to be here and looking forward to playing football week in week out,” he said.
The 24 year old was linked with İstanbul Basaksehir FK and Adana Demirspor before agreeing to a more lucrative term with the Urfa – based club. He will be playing away from Italy for the first time since he joined Italian side AC Milan in 2008 from Flying Sports Academy.
The deal which was brokered by Turkish agent Kemal Can Tekin will see Sanlıurfaspor get the first option to buy him outrightly next summer, according to Oduamadi.
The Nigeria international had earlier featured for Varese, Brescia, Torino and Crotone.
