Supersand Eagles’ striker, Abu Azeez, has teamed up with Nigeria Premier League (NPL) club, Kwara United, supersport.com can confirm.
The teenage forward sealed a one-year contract with the Afonja Warriors from Bridge FC just before the 2012 Copa Lagos Beach Soccer Worldwide kicked off.
Azeez has already trained with Kwara United for three weeks before teaming up with the Supersand Eagles for their defence of the Copa Lagos though he is yet to be issued a squad number at his new club.
“I’m so happy to have signed for Kwara United but I’m not fulfilled yet. I know it’s just a stepping stone. At least, I can showcase what I’ve got, and possibly earn a national call,” the former striker of Lagos-based club, Owibeseb FC.
It will be Azeez’s debut season in the top flight and he has told supersport.com that he is not setting a target for himself.
“I won’t do that just yet as it will be my first time in the Premier League and I don’t want to put myself under unneccesary pressure. But, I see myself doing well,” he remarked.
Azeez, however, will not be short of companion and guidance at Kwara United as his Supersand Eagles’ teammate, Ogbonnaya Okemmiri is already a first-team member at the Premier League club.
He will also team up with ex-colleagues, Fuad Ekelojuoti and Dare Ojo, who have signed for the club.
