Nigerian midfielder links up with Club Brugge

01 September 2015, 16:02

Lisbon - The playing time that Mikel Agu has been craving for will be a reality as FC Porto have confirmed that they have sent the Nigerian midfielder out on a ?season-long loan to Belgian giants Club Brugge.

Primarily a defensive midfielder, the highly rated prospect can also be handy in central defence.

The 22-year-old was widely expected to be sent out on loan given the array of stars the Portuguese club signed in the summer transfer window.

He had attracted interest from Maritimo and Nacional in the summer transfer market but the Porto brass refused to sanction the move.

However, it is Club Brugge who have managed to secure the deal and he has officially joined up with the squad.

Porto are said to hold high hopes for the player in the future, but they feel he would benefit more from regular first team action at a smaller club for the year ahead.

Agu is currently on a deal with Porto until June 2007.
