Michael Babatunde seals four year deal with Volyn

The Nigeria international has put pen to paper for another Ukrainian side and will be there for the next four seasons for an undisclosed fee

Super Eagles' midfielder, Michael Babatunde has signed for Ukrainian Premier League side Volyn FC for four years and an undisclosed fee, his close confidant has told Goal.

Babatunde left FC Kryvbas another club in Ukraine after the club was declared bankrupt.

He featured for Nigeria at the Fifa Confederation Cup where he came from the bench twice against Tahiti and Uruguay.

Over five clubs notably from Ukraine made enquiries about the young Nigerian that will turn 21 on December 24 before he finally settled for Volyn whose contract offer and play time agreement was okay with Babatunde.

The former FC Ebiede and Heartland of Owerri player joined Kryvbas in 2011 before he left the club at the end of last season. The club owed him and his former team mates several months’ salaries and other entitlements.

He has since resumed training sessions with his new club towards featuring for them in the league that is already into its sixth round of matches this weekend.

Volyn are 14th with four points from five games on the log and they play at home to Karpaty on Monday August 19 in one of the day six matches.
