The A Lyga club said the player has been training with the squad.

In a statement by the club, the 24-year-old started his football career at the Supreme Court and Rhapsody academies in Nigeria before he left for Turkey in 2017 to join Yeni Malatyaspor club in Malatya.

He featured in the Turkish side U21 before he was promoted to the senior team to play in the Turkish topflight league.
