Norwegian Club Avaldsnes sign Falcon star Rasheedat Ajibade
Norwegian giants Avaldsnes have secured the services of Rasheedat Ajibade from Nigeria Women Premier League side FC Robo Queens on a two-year deal.
Ajibade was a member of the Nigeria side that won the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations in Ghana, having helped the team to a third-place finish at the 2018 WAFU Cup in Cote d’Ivoire.
“When you look at her age and her merits – been central to the U20 team and the A national team, most recently in the Africa championship that Nigeria and Rasheedat won,” said club’s coach Lena Tyriberget on Wednesday.
“You realize that Rasheedat is a very promising Nigerian national team player. As a player type, she is typically either 8s or 10s on the pitch.
“She is good with ball, is forward-looking in the game and has good drive. She is a player for the future. We look forward to having Rasheedat with us for the next two years.”
The new league season starts in March.
