KAA Gent signs Peter Olayinka

11 December 2015, 18:19

Lagos - Belgium league champions KAA Gent will in January have another Nigerian on their roster after a 1.1 million euros capture of Skenderbeu Korce midfielder Peter Olayinka.

20 year old Olayinka who moved to Albania at the age of 16 in 2012 has so far made 15 appearances for the Albanian champions Skenderbeu with 8 goals to his name.

In the Europa League he has made 5 appearances although he is yet to score he is one of the team best player so far in the tournament a form many believed made Gent snap him up.

The Belgium side already have Nigeria International Moses Simon in their team and Olayinka will sign a 3 year deal in January bringing to four the number of Nigerians on the club's payroll.

Aside Simon the other two Sadiq Yusuf and William Troost Ekong are out on loan to Norwegian side FK Haugeseund but Olayinka won't be going on loan upon his signing rather will battle for a spot in the team.

If reports of the fee of 1.1 million Euros are true the Nigerian will be the most expensive export in the history of Albania football.
