“He’s an exciting prospect and naturally very excited with this opportunity, which will most certainly enhance his rising profile, ” Mohammed stated.
Babawo further disclosed Yahaya is expected to join Spanish La Liga club Celta Vigo in September after his training stint with Spurs.
The winger, 17 in December, has been loaned out to Celta Vigo.
Several other players from the Flying Eagles have been released from their training camp in Abuja to team up with their European clubs in time for the forthcoming season.
