Young Nigerian striker signs SpVgg Greuther Fürth contract extension

Nigerian born striker Dickson Abiama has committed his future to SpVgg Greuther Fürth by signing a three-year contract extension.

The forward joined SpVgg Greuther Fürth in 2020 after leaving SC Eltersdorf.

He made good strides in the Kleeblätter’s squad last season.

Abiama made his debut for Greuther Fürth in the first round of the 2020/21 DFB-Pokal on 12 September 2020, coming on as a substitute in the 72nd minute for Branimir Hrgota against fifth-division side RSV Meinerzhagen. He scored two goals in the 113th and 118th minutes to secure a 6-1 win for Fürth after extra time.

The forward made his 2. Bundesliga debut the following week on 20 September, once again coming on as a substitute for Hrgota in the 89th minute of Fürth’s home match against VfL Osnabrück, which finished as a 1-1 draw.

On 23 May 2021, the final matchday of the 2. Bundesliga season, Abiama scored the winning goal in the 83rd minute of a 3-2 home victory versus Fortuna Düsseldorf.

“I am delighted that those responsible have placed their trust in me and am grateful that I can extend my contract in Fürth,” Abiama said to the official website of Greuther Fürth.

“Last year was just amazing and I want to help ensure that we give our fans as much joy as possible in the coming season”.

The 6 ft 0 in attacker also lists SpVgg Mögeldorf and Quelle Fürth as his former clubs.

Dickson Abiama is eligible to play for Nigeria at international level.
