Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala has signed a permanent contract with Spanish side Barcelona, Futbalgalore.com can report.
Futbalgalore.com can reveal the former FC Robo Queens striker has completed a long-term deal with the Catalonia-based club after featuring on loan.
The club officially announced on their website that Asisat Oshoala will sign a contract at Barcelona until 2022.
“Asisat Oshoala and FC Barcelona are to sign a new contract that ties the player to the Catalan club until 30 June 2022, following the agreement for the Nigerian international to be transferred to the club from Chinese side Dalian Quanjian,” the club announced on their website.
“The 24-year-old striker came to Barça last January 31 on what was originally a loan move. In her four months here, Oshoala has played in eleven competitive fixtures and returned eight goals, including what will always be the team’s first ever goal in a Champions League Final, although it wasn’t enough to bring the trophy back from Budapest.
“Voted African Women’s Footballer of the Year three times, she is currently away with her national team preparing for the World Cup in France, where the Super Falcons share a tough group with the host nation, Norway and South Korea.
“For that reason, she is unable to put pen to paper right now, but will be doing so as soon as her schedule permits.”
The 24-year-old scored 8 goals in 11 games for Barcelona Women in just 6 months at the club, which convinced the board to sign her on a permanent deal. Also, she became the only Barcelona player to score in the 4-1 loss to Lyon in UEFA Women Champions League final.
The former Rivers Angels star, who previously played for Dalian Quanjian, has had stints with Liverpool as well as Arsenal.
