Nigerian forward Bright Enobakhare has revealed why he joined Ifeanyi Udeze former club Greek Super League side, AEK Athens after a six-year stint with Premier League giant, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 22-year-old Dream Team VII striker refused to renew his contract with Nuno Espírito Santo’s side after being sent on loan to Wigan in January for a short spell before he joined the Yellow-Blacks as a free agent.

Enobakhare however, put pen to paper for a three year deal with the Greek giants and joins the growing list of Nigerian players plying their trades in the league.

Speaking on his move to the Athens Olympic Stadium outfit, the young forward told the club’s official website: "It is a great move (the transfer to AEK) and I am happy to be here,”

"To be honest, I searched the internet, like YouTube, for how the team plays and trains, and I think it will fit my gameplay, so I’m happy to be here.”

"I don’t want to talk about myself so much, I think the stadium will ‘talk’ about me,” he added the Benin City-born.

Enobakhare who was part of Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 U23 AFCON in Egypt, had loan spells at Coventry City, Wigan Athletic, and Scottish Premiership club Kilmarnock will look to impress Gernot Rohr with the Greek side to boost his chances for Super Eagles call up.
