Nigeria’s first choice goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has signed a four-year deal with French Champions Lille.
The 28-year-old signs as a free agent after completing his contract with Israeli side Hapoel Tel Aviv.
“I have signed a deal with Lille. It is for four years,” Enyeama confirmed.
The ex Enyimba shot-stopper will now get the opportunity to feature in next season’s UEFA Champions League with the three-time French champions who also won the French Cup in the just ended season.
Enyeama posted superlative performances at last year’s World Cup in South Africa to fuel rapid speculations about his future.
His move follows that of compatriots Taye Taiwo to recently joined crowned Italian kings AC Milan and striker Emmanuel Emenike to Turkish champions Fenerbache.
Enyeama is a brilliant goal-keeper and Lille are lucky to have him. I hope he'll become there first choice goal-keeper fast.
