Belgian club KAA Gent has secured the signature of two teenage Nigerian footballers, Adewale Oladoye and Chinonso Emeka from Water FC in Nigeria.
“KAA Gent has given Adewale Oladoye and Chinonso Emeka their first professional contract,” the club said in a statement.
“Both youngsters, born in 2001, were trained by the Nigerian Academy Water FC, where they were noticed by ex-Buffalo Egu Augustine and Marc Clarysse.
“Adewale Oladoye (August 25, 2001 – pictured right) is a powerful defensive midfielder. Chinonso Emeka (August 30, 2001) is a big, fast striker.
“They will have the opportunity to mature with the reserves team, and now and then already train with the first team.”
Gent is a club in Belgium’s first division, the Jupiler Pro League and finished second on the table behind Club Brugge in the 2019/20 season.
