Nigeria U20 midfielder Chukwudi Agor has finally commenced his look-in at Spanish side Extremadura UD, potentially hoping for a contract after the three-week drill by manager Manuel Ruiz, Scorenigeria.com.ng reports.
The civil unrest that trailed the Catalonian Referendum as well as flight hitches combined to delay the former Nigeria U17 Golden Eaglets World Cup winner in Chile, 2015.
But after arriving the European country and was received by Extremendura officials as well as former FC Barcelona and Nigeria winger Emmanuel Amuneke, Agor was conducted round the 11, 580-capacity Francisco de la Hera Stadium amongst other facilities of the club.
He will officially begin to train with the club on Monday.
“Agor (Chukwudi) enjoyed a warm reception on arrival in Spain”, an official of his academy ASJ told Scorenigeria.com.ng
“Right from the airport, officials of the club including Emmanuel Amuneke were on hand to welcome him.
“He was conducted round the club’s house and the stadium facilities.
“It was a nice experience and by Monday he will commence the real trials”.
Should everything go to plan and the Nigeria youngster eventually convinces manager Manuel Ruiz to pen a deal, he would become the fourth foreign player in the club and first African to dorn the colours of the Azulgranas after Filip Jankovic of Serbia, Zarfina Gio of Uruguay and Gonzalo Alfaro of Ecuador.
