Flying Eagles Star Commits Future to Bournemouth

Nnamdi Ofoborh has committed his future to Premier League outfit Bournemouth after signing a new deal that will keep him with the Cherries until 2021.

The Nigerian midfielder has seen his stocks rise at the English side in the past few months, notably winning the Cherries’ Young Player of the Season for 2017/18.

He moved to the club in 2015 after previous spells at Tottenham Hotspur and Millwall.

The 19-year-old, who is the captain of the Cherries’ U-21 side, has been training with the first team squad of the club regularly this season.

After putting pen to paper on the new deal, the midfielder expressed gladness and his desire to keep the flag flying high at Bournemouth.

“Coming to the club three years ago this is a real positive for me and I feel great being here,” Ofoborh enthused.

“I’m really happy, my family is really happy and I just want to keep moving forward from this point on.

“I found out just before an under-21s game, the gaffer called me into his office and wanted to speak to me, I was a little bit nervous to be fair I didn’t know what he wanted to say!

“I thought he wanted to talk about the game or something else I’m not sure! But I was over the moon, he’s a great manager and coach, he helps me with everything I need to work on.

“I need to work and listen to all of the coaching staff to make me a better player for the future.

“I want to stay consistent, hopefully, [I will] be listening to all the coaches at the club I can kick on and my aim is to stay in and around the first team fold.”

Ofoborh made his debut for Nigeria’s U-20 national team Flying Eagles in a friendly against Egypt in March.
