 Highest-Scoring Nigerian In Major League Soccer History Joins Columbus Crew
Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that Major League Soccer club Columbus Crew are on the verge of announcing the signing of former Super Eagles invitee Fanendo Adi.

About a week ago, Cincinnati placed him on waivers and deleted his name from the squad list ahead of the start of the 2020 season.

Adi is now a player of Columbus Crew after he was claimed off waivers by the club and he will reunite with his former coach at Portland Timbers, Caleb Porter at The Crew.

The 6-foot-4 striker made 25 appearances for FC Cincinnati after becoming their first-ever designated player, scoring 5 goals during an eighteen-month spell.

Last season, he appeared in 12 games in Major League Soccer, including seven starts, logging 695 points.

Before moving to the American top-flight in 2014, Adi played at FC Copenhagen, AS Trencin, Tavriya Simferopol,  Dynamo Kyiv and Metalurh Donetsk.

Adi is the highest-scoring Nigerian in the history of Major League Soccer with 55 goals from 138 appearances in the regular season.
