Nigerian U-17 star Victor Osimhen has revealed that he would be joining German club Wolfsburg amidst speculation that he will be moving to the Premier League.
The 16-year old, who was on Thursday, named Player of the Year at the Caf Awards in Abuja, disclosed this information moments after receiving the award.
Speaking to the media, Osimhen said: “I have visited the team in Wolfsburg and with the promises the coach made to me when I visited the arena, I think Wolfsburg is my destination.
When the 16-year-old was asked whether the Bundesliga team was a stepping stone to a bigger club in England or Spain, he replied: “I’m going to stay at Wolfsburg for as long as the team can keep me.”
Osimhen was named second most valuable player at the Fifa U17 World Cup behind team mate Kelechi Nwakali, and his heroics earned him a place in the Nigeria U23 side that won the U23 Africa Cup of Nations in Senegal last month.
