Official : Teenage Nigerian Striker Joins Croatian Club HNK Hajduk Split
Croatian Prva HNL side HNK Hajduk Split have confirmed the signing of promising Nigerian attacker, Stephen Chinedu.

Aged nineteen, he was offered a contract by the six-time Croatian champions following a successful trial that lasted for about two weeks.

He has penned a three-year contract that will keep him at HNK Hajduk Split until at least the end of the 2021-2022 season.

Chinedu arrived in Neretvanac FC in the winter along with compatriot Uche Anoruoom and was invited to train with HNK Hajduk Split after impressing in a friendly game against Hajduk junior.

Goodness Ajayi, Erhun Obanor, Musa Muhammed, Godfrey Oboabona and Iyayi Believe made appearances for Croatian top flight clubs in the 2018-2019 season.

HNK Hajduk Split are third in the standings with 62 points after 35 matches in the division, with one round remaining.
