Agbo who is still very young has experience playing in Spain for Granada and is expected to settle well in his second spell.

He is expected to help Rayo Vallecano in their fight to escape the drop to the lower division as they are currently in 17th a place ahead of the three bottom relegation zones.

Agbo who was dropped by Gernot Rohr for the Super Eagles team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia will hope to reestablish himself and play regular football at Rayo Vallecano.

He is expected to be unveiled during the week and could make his debut when Rayo Vallecano take on Espanyol on Saturday, February 10.
