Former goal king of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Junior Lokosa has joined Esperance of Tunisia on a two and half-year deal. 

Lokosa came into prominence in the 2017/2018 NPFL season after he finished as the highest goalscorer with 19 goals in just 21 league goals for Kano Pillars

The 25-year-old also helped Pillars to the final of the 2018 Federation Cup where they lost to Enugu Rangers

After just a season with Pillars, the striker has now joined Tunisian giants Esperance.

There, it's done. Forward @ juniorlokosa signs a 2 ½ year contract at @ ESTuniscom . Welcome boy,” the club tweeted.
