Transfers: Super Eagles star moves to Spain

Super Eagles Super Eagles

The summer transfer window is shut, but clubs can still bring in players that are not registered to any team currently 

Forgotten Super Eagles striker Junior Lokosa has found a new club after six months without a club. The former Kano Pillars star has signed for Almeria’s reserve team. 

Lokosa will hope to put his career back on track with the latest move following a difficult six months. The Nigerian international has been without a club since he was released by Tanzanian club Simba SC in March. 

He joined Simba SC as a free agent after leaving Esperance FC but only stayed at the club for just two months. 

But he has now been offered a chance again in Spain, although with Almeria’s reserve team. Lokosa is the latest Nigerian to join the Spanish side after Sadiq Umar, who is the club’s leading marksman.

The 28-year-old is also a Nigerian international with one cap to his name, which came in the friendly game against the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2018.
