Done Deal: Ex-Flying Eagles Star Tijani Joins Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth Argyle have announced the loan signing of former Flying Eagles striker, Muhamed Tijani.

Tijani moved to the Sky Bet Championship club from Czech outfit, Slavia Prague.

The deal comes with an option for Argyle to buy the player at the end of his loan spell.

Argyle Head Coach Wayne Rooney said: “Muhamed joining further strengthens our forward line and he will bring different attributes to the squad.

“He is big, athletic and can run in behind, but is equally as good at holding the ball up and bringing other players into play.

“He has played and scored in the Europa League so comes with good pedigree but is also young and keen to improve. We are really looking forward to working with him.”

Argyle Director of Football Neil Dewsnip commented: “We are really pleased that we have managed to bring Muhamed to the club.

“He was highly coveted, with several Europa League clubs keen to secure his signature, but Muhamed really bought into the project here at Argyle and was desperate to play for Wayne.

“He brings a different profile to our forward line and still has so much potential for growth, which we are really excited about.

“It is great to get another signing done before pre-season begins and we are all looking forward to getting started.”

    This Tijani deserves to be in the Super Eagles. He must be invited soon.

  • Upon all the Quality Strikers we have why must we invite a player playing in Sky Bet Championship??. This is the Average players playing abroad we are talking about why not at least give him a chance to see how he performs.. Nigerians you people surprise me everyday, you know we have a World Cup to rescue and these are the players you want us to invite not that we even need strikers but why can’t you guys at least understand football dynamics and the difference in tiers. I mean it is not as if you spend your days watching Championship rather you are on about Arsenal Chelsea Man City and United. Did you not see Lesly Ugochukwu or Noni Madueke also attackers it is this guy you want in SE then you will be proclaiming Giant of Africa when they understandably under perform in SE or at least not to the international standard (which they are not, otherwise they won’t be languashing in Championship), you people will open mouth WAAAAAA!! and be saying Dual Foreign players are weak, Yet you keep clamouring for the weak ones.

    Must everybody play for Super Eagles.. Or
