New arrival at Benfica of Portugal, Tyronne Ebuehi will yield a princely sum for his former club, ADO Den Haag of Holland, as the side where he will line out next season will pay the Dutch team 240,000 euros (approximately N101.5m) compensation fee for the right-back.
Though Ebuehi is joining Benfica as a free agent, the Portuguese side are following FIFA regulations on transfer of young players, as they are required to pay training compensation to ADO because he is under the age of 23.
The Super Eagles rookie, who spoke in Portuguese during his presentation on Saturday, will complete his transfer to Benfica on July 2, when the transfer market officially opens in the country.
Benfica have already agreed to pay ADO the compensation fee, despite facts also showing that the defender had recently recovered from a groin injury, as Benfica signed him after a medical examination.
However, The Eagles may loan Ebuehi to a Dutch club for a year, having earlier agreed the move in January but remained in the Netherlands where he could play regularly and improve his chances of getting into Nigeria’s World Cup squad.
