"Chidi Osuchukwu is the first African in the history of Tom Tomsk! Chidi's last club was Rukh Brest from Belarus," Tom Tomsk said in a statement via Twitter. 

"The newcomer contract's is valid until the end of the season. Osuchukwu will perform with the 11th number.

"Welcome to Tom Tomsk, Chidi".

Osuchukwu joined Rukh Brest in the winter transfer market after spells with Sporting Braga, Dynamo Brest and previously played for Dolphin FC in his homeland.

Now 27, he represented the Flying Eagles at the 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup held in Turkey.
