MSV Duisburg snap up free agent Obinna Nsofor

09 September 2015, 21:43

Munich - German 2 Bundesliga club MSV Duisburg have announced the signing of Victor Obinna Nsofor following a successful medical examination and the issuance of his International Transfer Certificate by the Russian Football Union.

And this ends speculation surrounding the future of the Super Eagles striker, having been linked with possible moves to Italy, Turkey, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates after his contract was not renewed by his former club Lokomotiv Moscow.

Speaking after signing the contract, Nsofor told MSV Duisburg's official website: ''I look forward to the new task here, the club, the fans and my teammates. I’ll do my best and hopefully play as soon as possible to help the team.''

Sporting Director of MSV Duisburg added: ''I am happy that Gino Lettieri and I were able to convince a player of the stature of Victor to get to MSV. And I am sure that he will help us with his skills, our goal for the season to avoid relegation.''

For the remainder of this season, the 28-year-old will play with the number 15 shirt.

MSV Duisburg can activate an option to extend the Nigerian's contract for a further season if he impresses in the 2015-16 campaign.

He previously played for Inter Milan, Chievo, West Ham and Malaga.
