Done Deal : Scottish Club Loan In Versatile Defender Famewo From Norwich CityPublished: January 08, 2020
Scottish Premiership outfit St Mirren FC have completed the signing of 21-year-old defender of Nigeria descent Akin Famewo from English Premier League side Norwich City.
The loan deal which is subject to international clearance from the English Football Association will end in the summer.
"I'm very happy to be here, I've heard a lot good things about the club," Famewo told St Mirren's official webpage.
"I didn't know a great lot about Scottish football but I know Kenny McLean and he's told me a bit about it. I spoke to him about the move as he has links to the club and I was really keen to join.
"The manager has been very welcoming and I'm looking forward to working with him. I'm very excited as it's a great opportunity in a great league."
Predominantly a central defender, Famewo is also comfortable playing as a left back and he will team up with Jonathan Obika at St Mirren.
