Bundesliga club Union Berlin loses another Nigerian striker
just a few days after Taiwo Awoniyi left Union Berlin, the club has lost another Nigerian striker described as 'calm' and 'stable' by his new club.
Swedish first division side, IFK Goteborg, has confirmed through a statement that the club has signed Suleiman Abdullahi from Berlin.
Abdullahi has since put pen to paper on a three-year contract that will see him return to the Allsvenskan until the summer of 2025.
"From the Bundesliga to the Allsvenskan, Suleiman Abdullahi returns to Scandinavian football - and has signed a contract until 2025," the club said in a statement.
The deal sees Abdullahi become the second Nigerian to leave the Bundesliga outfit following the departure of Super Eagles forward, Awoniyi, who joined Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest in a club-record move last week.
Speaking on the move, IFK coach boss, Mikael Stahre, said;
"We believe that Suleiman can fit in our environment and reach the same high level even in an all-Swedish context. What stands out most to me is his physique, speed and goal danger."
The club's chief scout added that Abdullahi has always been on the club's radar.
"Suleiman is a player that I personally have followed for a long time, ever since he came to Viking. You can really say that he is well scouted," he told the club.
"In addition to his football qualities, Suleiman is a calm, stable family man. We see that he will fit in very well with us, on the pitch and in the group."
