Official: Super Eagles Defender Troost-Ekong Signs For UdinesePublished: August 17, 2018
Italian Serie A club Udinese have announced the signing of Nigeria international William Troost-Ekong on undisclosed terms, the official website of the Little Zebras has reported.
The central defender is joining Udinese from Turkish Super Lig club Bursaspor, where he spent about one year after joining the club from KAA Gent in Belgium.
Commenting on the transfer of the Super Eagles center back, Udinese's technical director Daniele Pradè stated : ''Ekong is a player with an important physical structure, skilled in the air both in defense and attack.
''We talk about an aggressive central defender, strong and with an excellent game play : a thoughtful, non-instinctive leader who always tries to play the ball, all characteristics that go very well with the game of Mr. Velazquez''.
A former Netherlands U20 international, Troost-Ekong is credited with 3 goals in 32 appearances in all competitions for Bursaspor.
He lists SV Overbos, Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur, FC Groningen, FC Dordrecht and Haugesund amongst his former employers.
