Al Ahly complete signing of Ajayi from Sfaxien

Junior Ajayi


Nigerian forward  has completed his $2.5 million move from Tunisian side CS Sfaxien to  on a four-year deal.

The 20-year-old becomes Al Ahly’s fifth signing of the summer window, after Mohamed El-Shenawy, Marwan Mohsen, Ali Maaloul and Mido Gaber.

The Nigerian international started his career in Nigerian side 36 Lion FC, before joining CS Sfaxien last summer for an undisclosed fee.

Ajayi scored 10 goals and provided 7 assists in 28 league games for the Tunisian club, helping them finishing third in the domestic league.

The player will join the champions after this summer’s Olympic Games, as he is currently representing the Super Eagles in the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

It’s worth mentioning that Ajayi wasn’t Al Ahly’s main target as they were waiting for a bigger name, but he turned down their offer.
