Official: Nigerian Wonderkid Signs New Contract With Scottish Giants Rangers
Dapo Mebude has inked a new contract with Scottish Premiership giants Rangers, writes the Glasgow club on their official website.

Steven Gerrard's side have prematurely ended their association with two highly-rated Nigerian players in Ovie Ejaria and Umar Sadiq but they have tied one of the most promising teenagers of Nigerian descent to a new deal, eighteen months after he penned his first professional contract with the club.

The 17-year-old Mebude is now contracted to Rangers until the summer of 2021.

Speaking on Mebude's new deal, Rangers Head of Academy Craig Mulholland stated : ''We are delighted to extend Dapo’s contract.

''It is only the start however, and Dapo recognises that we have now created a fantastic high performance environment here at Rangers which, with hard work, will allow him to maximise his talent.

''He also sees the opportunity which now exists for talented players at Rangers, and importantly has shown us the obsessive qualities we look for in young players to climb this new pathway.''

Mebude is also eligible to represent Scotland internationally and has three appearances for their U19 national team.
