0

Nigerian winger Samuel Kalu has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with former Belgian Champions KAA Gent from Slovakian side AS Trencin for an undisclosed fee.

Kalu will join his compatriots Moses Simon, Anderson Esiti, Rabiu Ibrahim and William Troost-Ekong at the Belgian side.

The 19-year-old will also be the third Nigerian who has moved from Trencin to Gent after Rabiu Ibrahim and Moses Simon.

Kalu, who can play from the wing or as a second striker, joined Trencin in January 2016 and won the Slovakian league title with them as well as the Slovakian Cup.

The pacy winger played 42 matches for Trencin, scoring six goals and providing eight assists in his debut season in Europe which prompted Gent to sign him on.

Kalu, like Moses Simon, is a product of GBS Academy in Jos, Nigeria, and will continue his football education with the Buffaloes until 2020.
