Nigerian Manchester City Player Olarenwaju Kayode signs for Shakhtar Donetsk
London, June 9, 2019, (AltAfrika) – Manchester City striker Olarenwaju Kayode has joined Shakhtar Donetsk for an undisclosed fee.
The Nigeria international, who was signed by City boss Pep Guardiola in a £3.5m deal from Austria Vienna last August, has agreed a five-year deal with the Ukrainian champions.
The 25-year-old forward did not make a single appearance for City as he was immediately loaned out to Spanish club Girona before moving to Shakhtar in a similar deal in March.
Shakhtar general director Sergei Palkin told the club’s official website: “Kayode will continue to play for Shakhtar.
“We redeemed him from Manchester City and he has signed a five-year contract. He proved himself well, Paulo (Fonseca, Shakhtar manager) is pleased with him.”
Kayode scored three goals in eight games during his Shakhtar loan spell.
