Swedish outfit Trelleborg have activated an option to sign Nigerian defender Abel Ogwuche on a permanent deal.
The agreement ties Ogwuche under contract at Vångavallen until 2026.
Ogwuche spent the past season on loan at Trelleborg from Tripple 44 Football Academy. He made seven appearances during the Suprettan season.
The teenager played in games against Dalkurd, Landscrona, Örgryte, Brage, Orebro, Östersund and Östers IF.
The 19-year-old was previously invited to the Golden Eaglets camp. He is eligible for selection in the Flying Eagles team.
Abel Ogwuche is a good passer who will undoubtedly fit well for any club. The defender has the tendency to produce good passes in between the opposition’s line. He often takes his time to observe his passing options to distort the opponent’s shape. This he does before supplying a pass that begins an attack.
He is a fast and aggressive defender, his physical abilities give him an advantage while battling opponents.
Although Ogwuche is a big and strong defender he is very athletic for his posture which he shows in his jumping which makes him very solid in the air, but also his maneuverability is very good for a big defender like him.
