Greek side AEK Athens sign Nigerian striker Enobakhare

Greek Super League club, AEK Athens, have announced the signing of Bright Enobakhare on a free transfer.

The Nigerian striker departed Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers last month by mutual agreement, having been with the side since 2014.

The forward, who rose through the ranks at Wolves, broke into the first team in 2015 and made 41 league appearances for the side during his stay.

Enobakhare also had loan spells with Scottish club Kilmarnock, Coventry City and Wigan Athletic before permanently leaving Wolves.

On Saturday, AEK heralded the arrival of the former Northfield Town centre-forward after signing a three-year deal with the Greek club.

The striker is delighted to team up with the Athens Olympic Stadium side and explained he has been observing their style of play.

“It is a great move [the transfer to AEK] and I am happy to be here. To be honest, I searched the internet, like YouTube, for how the team plays and trains, and I think it will fit my gameplay,” Enobakhare told the club website.

“So I’m happy to be here. I don’t want to talk about myself so much, I think the stadium will ‘talk’ about me.”

Enobakhare was part of the Wolves team that gained promotion to the Premier League after winning the 2017/18 Championship title.

The 12-time league champions AEK are currently third on the league table with 56 points from 29 games, and will hope the addition of the forward will boost their chances of qualifying to play European football next season.
