Through a statement on their official website, Spanish
Segunda División side Deportivo de La Coruña have
announced the signing of Nigeria international Uche Agbo.
The central midfielder cut short his loan spell with
Sporting Braga in Portugal which was due to expire at
the end of the 2019-2020 season before joining
Deportivo de La Coruña on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
Uche passed a medical at the HM Modelo Hospital
last week and has visited the facilities of the Sports
City of Abegondo and the ABANCA-RIAZOR Stadium to
watch his new teammates in action.
The 24-year-old wore the colours of Taraba, JUTH
and Enyimba in his homeland before transferring to
Udinese in 2013 following a successful trial and his
other clubs in Europe include Granada, Watford and Rayo Vallecano.
He was a member of the Nigeria squad to the 2013
FIFA U20 World Cup and was named to the country’s
provisional roster for the senior World Cup five years later.
An option to extend his contract has been inserted into
the deal taking him to Deportivo de La Coruña.
Deportivo de La Coruña, who sit 20th in the table with
24 points from 24 matches, are guests to Albacete in
their next league game on Sunday, January 26.
