The Swedish top division club IF Goteborg on Tuesday announced signing Saidu Salisu, from NNL side Kano Pillars Fc, after joining them on loan.
The 20-year-old striker, who had spent the previous two weeks in Sweden on trial, has finally secured a contract for a loan with an option to buy.
Throughout the two-week trial, the forward won over the management, who were then persuaded to push for the transfer.
IF Goteborg, is currently ranked seventh in the Allevaskan after 15 games in the first round. The forward, who only had one goal for Pillars, will be hoping to help the Swedish team move up the rankings.
Saidu Salisu, who is aiming to get past the painful memories of being demoted from the NPFL with his old team Kano Pillars, will play alongside fellow countryman Suleiman Abdullahi for IF Goteborg
The former Akwa United player moved to Goteborg in the aim that he would score enough goals to convince the club to pursue a permanent transfer after the ongoing Sweden Allevaskan season.
Saidu Salisu’s departure means that Kano Pillars, who were recently relegated to Nigeria’s second tier, will probably lose the majority of their senior players.
