Rasheedat Ajibade Rejected 3-Year Vaxjo DFF Deal, Accommodation & Offer To Continue EducationPublished: December 28, 2018
Super Falcons rising star Rasheedat Ajibade was heavily courted by Swedish Damallsvenskan side Vaxjo DFF before she made an under-the-radar transfer to Norwegian club Avaldsnes IL, allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report.
The striker was offered a three-year contract by Vaxjo DFF but negotiations dragged on and on as her representatives were too slow to respond, leading to the eventual collapse of the deal.
Assuming the deal went through, Ajibade would have been given an accommodation by the Swedish club, who also promised her financial support to offset the costs of schooling in the country.
Last season, Vaxjo DFF paid the wages of another Nigeria international Osinachi Ohale and Ajibade would not have had problems adapting to life in Sweden.
It is understood that the Super Falcons technical crew and an unnamed Nigeria Football Federation staff convinced Nigeria's most promising talent to accept the offer from Avaldsnes IL.
Ajibade has represented Nigeria at the Fifa U17 and U20 Women's World Cups and would be hoping to join a select group of Nigerian players which includes Ngozi Okobi and Francisca Ordega to have scored in all three Fifa women's tournaments if she finds the net in France 2019.
