Нигерийский нападающий Ияйи Атимвен стал очередным новичком нашей команды. Игрок прошел медицинский осмотр и подписал соглашение с клубом, став полноправной частью дружной семьи ФК «Шериф».
Sheriff Tiraspol excelled in last season's UEFA Champions League including the qualifying rounds of the competition, with wins against Red Star Belgrade, Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Nigerian has joined Sheriff Tiraspol from Croatian team Dinamo Zagreb, who bought him for a fee of 2.65 million euros from HNK Gorica - the most expensive player sold by Turopoljci in their history.
Iyayi appeared in 58 matches for Dinamo Zagreb, notching 12 goals while recording six assists.
On his curriculum vitae, the 26-year-old has also worn the colours of Kayseri Erciyesspor, Caykur Rizespor, Sanliurfaspor, NK Lokomotiva Zagreb, Omonia Nicosia and Manisaspor in the past.
