  • This kid is one of Nigeria’s genuine young talent. While it is good that he has transferred to Europe, I only hope he doesn’t get lost in the shuffle that is The English lower leagues.
    It would have been advisable for him to start his career in Europe, in modest leagues like Belgium, Holland or Portugal.
    One hopes he impresses enough to stay put or transfer to a good club-side outside The UK.
    All the best to you, young Benjamin Frederick!

    Solid player he deserves a better deal than a loan but he has the talent to steal their attention and get a permanent deal. Frank Thomas has an eye for talent…..

  • @Chima E. Samuels, very true.
