Sensational Nigerian born defensive midfielder Emmanuel Okwudili Onu has landed a mouthwatering contract with Sudanese Premier League side Al Hilal.
The 19-year-old was snapped-up in a one year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The very creative Onu has had a stint at Isa Town in Bahrain as well as RC Athletico of Cape Town in South Africa before moving to Sudan.
According to a top source, manager of the Sudanese side, Lamine N’diaye, did everything possible to land the player which he describes as ‘solid’.
A native of Obe in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu state, the talented player who has featured in all four league games for his club since joining Al Hilal says his focus at the moment is to help his club win the league and qualify for the continental championships, but added that playing for the Nigerian team will be a great opportunity.
He said: “It’s a great opportunity to play for Al Hilal. At the moment I want to concentrate on helping my team win the league. We are second on the Sudanese Premier League at the moment, but I am sure we look good winning it.
“I want to keep working hard because I see a great future ahead; it would also be great to play in the national colours, but at the moment, I need to focus on my club.
Al Hilal are currently second on the Premier League table with 12 points winning all four games, scoring 13 and conceding 1.
They have two matches to spare due to club engagement in the CAF Confederations Cup. Rivals Al-Merrikh are top of the log with 15 points, having played 6 games.
