FC Polissia Zhytomyr, a Ukrainian Premier League club, has announced the signing of Chijioke Aniagboso, the Flying Eagles goalkeeper.
Aniagboso has inked a five-year contract with the recently promoted club.
FC Polissia emerged victorious against the Ukrainian Persha Liha last weekend.
Currently, the young goalkeeper is representing the Nigeria U-20 side at the World Cup in Argentina.
During the 2023 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Egypt, Aniagboso caught the attention of FC Polissia scouts.
In preparation for the 2023/24 season, the 19-year-old will join the squad.
Nigeria’s Flying Eagles were awarded the Fair Play accolade at the CAF U20 Africa Cup of Nations, which concluded in Egypt.
The Ladan Bosso-led team received this recognition from the Confederation of African Football a day after securing the bronze medal at the tournament.
The Flying Eagles achieved a 4-0 victory over Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles in the match held at Cairo International Stadium.
