Esiti Joins Greek Champions PAOK From Gent On Four-Year Contract

Esiti Joins Greek Champions PAOK From Gent On Four-Year Contract

Nigerian midfielder Anderson Esiti has joined Greek champions PAOK on a four-year deal from Belgian side, KAA Gent, reports Completesports.com.

The 25 year old has linked up with Nigerian-born forward Chuba Akpom at the club.

The lanky midfielder came close to securing a move to Spanish LaLiga side, Levante last summer, but the transfer fell through.

PAOK were also unsuccessful with a move for Esiti during the January transfer window.

Esiti joined Gent from Portuguese club Estoril for a fee around €1.5m in 2016 and made 77 league appearances for the club without a goal to his name.

He also failed to hit the back of the net in a league game for Estoril and his previous club Leixoes.

On the international scene, Esiti has capped two time by the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

    Not the kind of move expected of this combative midfielder Esiti i think you can do better.
    To break into the super eagles at 25 at least a french or Spanish league could have done it for you definitely not Greeks.
    Anyways,i wish you success as you take your career to Greece and beyond.

    • That’s the move available to him. The Greek league is by no means a weak league,you can check out their EUFA ranking.
      We must understand that it’s not always the players’ fault.Osimhen was this good,even before he joined Lille. Let’s encourage our players, in things like this.
      Playing for the Greek Champions, Greece masters of the science of defending, Esiti has committed no offence please.He just made a positive move. Give him kudos please
