In another story, Danish outfit FC Midtjylland has secured the services of teenage midfielder James Inyere Arinze.

The club who brought Frank Onyeka, Paul Onuachu and Raphael Onyedika to Europe, agreed to terms and signed the teenager.

Arinze was actually a striker when he joined Nigeria National League side FC Ebedei, two years ago. But was converted into a central midfielder after the hierarchy of the grassroots club saw big potentials in his game.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Arinze expresses excitement to start his career in Europe with FC Midtjylland.

One of Arinze’s goals in the future is to play in the English Premier League and win big titles for his club while representing Nigeria internationally.

“It means a lot to me, and it has been a goal since I was very small. Now it’s about working even harder so I can achieve more of my goals,” says James Arinze.

“My biggest dream is to end up in the Premier League, but before then I know that there are many steps that need to be taken.
