Olanrewaju Kayode Signs For Shakthar

Super Eagles striker Olanrewaju Kayode has joined Shakthar Donetsk after Premier League champions Manchester City agreed an undisclosed fee with the Ukrainians for his services.

The former Flying Eagles star has signed a five-year deal with the Ukrainian champions.

Kayode, 25, joined Manchester City in a £3.5million deal from Austria Vienna last August but did not make a single appearance for the Citizens as he was immediately loaned out to Spanish club Girona.

He then moved to Shakhtar in a similar deal in March and went on to score three goals in eight appearances.

On the new acquisition, the Club’s general director Sergei Palkin told the club’s official website that: “Kayode will continue to play for Shakhtar.

“We redeemed him from Manchester City and he has signed a five-year contract.

“He proved himself well, Paulo (Fonseca, Shakhtar manager) is pleased with him.” He concluded.
