Midfielder Afeez Aremu has completed a transfer to Bundesliga 2 club St.Pauli from IK Start of Norway.
Aremu, 20, has signed a three-year contract, which runs till June 2023, after his deal with IK Start was due to run out at the end of this year.
“It’s a big club and an important step in my development,” he said after he signed the dotted lines.
“I can’t wait to get to know my teammates.”
Both St.Pauli and IK Start agreed not to disclose the financial aspects of the transfer.
IK Start scouted the defensive midfielder at the 2017 WAFU Nations Cup in Ghana, where the home-based Eagles reached the championship game, and he featured for them in the Norwegian top flight before they were relegated.
He will then help them to return to the top league this past season.
Aremu has been capped by Nigeria at U20 and CHAN Eagles levels.
