Nigerian youngster Chidera Ejuke, has signed a three-year deal with Norwegian first division club Valerenga, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Ejuke joined Valerenga from Gee-Lec International from Jos, having successfully passed trials with the club after four weeks in Marbella, Spain.

“I had a very nice stay in Spain, and I was well received by the group,” Ejuke, 19, told vif-fotball.no.

“I am very grateful for this opportunity and look forward to playing for Vålerenga. Hopefully I get the chance to show my qualities in several matches during the cause of the season.”

Ejuke was also praised by his coach Ronny Deila.

“Chidi is a big young talent with great speed and skill offensively. In addition, he is a teachable and humble boy with great potential,” the former Celtic coach told the club’s website.

“He’ll need a few months to adapt to all that is new, but I’m sure he’s going to contribute to the team during the season.”
