Danish league side Viborg FF have announced the signing of Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets forward Ibrahim Said on a 4-year deal from Dabo Football Academy in Nigeria

Ibrahim Said made a name for himself at the U17 World Cup last year, where he played all four matches for Nigeria and, among other things, scored a hat-trick in the team’s 3-2 victory over Ecuador.

The club announced his signing on their official club website on Wednesday afternoon, after unveiling the pacey winger.

Said can play as a winger or central midfielder, and he has entered into an agreement with VFF until 2024.

" We see Ibrahim Said as a very interesting offensive player with a really exciting raw potential, we hope and believe in being able to release with us.

" We are well aware that it is a big step for a young man to move to Europe, so we must also have patience, but we believe that we have got a strong setup to develop young players, and we have high expectations for him in the long run.

" He is a player who can cover several offensive positions, is technically proficient and then he has shown at the U17 World Cup that he can also get product on his actions.

" We believe that he fits in well with our way of playing, and we look forward to seeing him in the green jersey, says sports manager Jesper Fredberg.

The agreement with Said was entered into before the transfer window closed, but due to a long wait for a visa, he did not land in Viborg until this week.
