SCORENigeria can again exclusively reveal that Premier League club Manchester City paid Austrian Wien £ 5 million as transfer fee for Olanrewaju Kayode.
On Thursday, Austrian Wien officially announced Kayode’s transfer to Manchester City on a four-year contract, but the Nigeria striker will immediately go on a season-long loan to newly promoted La Liga club FC Girona.
The official announcement did not reveal the worth of the transfer.
However, a source who is familiar with this transaction has now told SCORENigeria: “The transfer fee for Kayode was five million pounds.”
His market valuation before his transfer was put at 3.5 million pounds as exclusively reported by SCORENigeria
SCORENigeria was also first to report that Kayode was on his way to the Premier League.
He was initially to have joined Newcastle United, back in the top flight after a season in the English Championship, before he got a call from Pep Guardiola to come down and team up with Manchester City.
