Nigeria U23 star Oghenekaro Etebo has revealed he is set to move to Europe this month, but refused to name the club he has reached an agreement with.

“This January I will move to Europe, everything has been agreed, but I won’t disclose the name of the club yet,” he said.

On Thursday, the Warri Wolves midfielder was named CAF Most Promising Talent after he finished top scorer at the recent U23 AFCON in Senegal with five goals.

Warri Wolves have placed a 2 million Euros price tag on the player even though this has since been reviewed downwards.

Several Tunisian clubs including Esperance are reportedly willing to break the bank to sign Etebo.

Two years ago, he underwent trials at Italian club Sampdoria, but a knee injury eventually scuttled the transfer.
