Top Moroccan club Raja Casablanca have completed the acquisition of Nigerian winger Michael Babatunde on a three-and-half year deal after he successfully passed a medical on Monday, their official website has reported.
Super Eagles 2014 World Cup star Babatunde, who dumped Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in Decemeber, has been handed the No.10 jersey at the club, his agent Makanjuola Nureni told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“The deal is a good one and Michael is happy about it, which is the most important thing,” Nureni said.
Babatunde, according to Nureni, will head to Marrakech on Thursday to join up with his new teammates ahead of the second stanza of the Moroccan league.
Raja Casablanca will be Babatunde’s fifth club having featured for Heartland FC, FC Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih, FC Volyn Lutsk and Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.
The 23-year-old will team up with fellow Nigeria international Osaguona Ighodaro at the club.
