Nigeria striker Aaron Samuel has signed a contract for four and a half years with Russian champions CSKA Moscow.
His agent, Atta Aneke, disclosed the big striker has now signed permanently from Chinese club Guanghzou R&F.
“Finally it's a done deal!!! Aaron Samuel has signed a 4,5 year contract with CSKA Moscow joining them from Guangzhou RF in China. Fantastic day for all of us,” reported Atta on Facebook.
Samuel first joined CSKA on a loan deal, but could not make the deal permanent after he suffered a long-term knee injury in the Russian Cup final and had to be sidelined for about eight months.
The big international striker has played in Norway and also Shooting Stars in the NPFL.
He was first scouted by Atta on a trip to Nigeria in 2013.
