Razak Omotoyossi, a Benin international, has been snapped up by French Ligue 2 outfit Metz.
He has been on the tablets of many European clubs since he impressed by scoring 28 goals with Helsingborgs in 2007. Contrary to what many pundits predicted, the Nigerian-born striker then chose a move to Saudi club Al-Nassr, a switch that was wholly unsuccessful as he played only a handful of games before having his deal terminated.
Omotoyossi then moved to Egypt, where he trained with Al-Ahly and was briefly believed to have sign there.
Bucking all predictions, the forward has decided to sign for Metz, famous for recently being the home of players such as Franck Ribery and Emmanuel Adebayor.
With his national team at present, Omotoyossi seems to have buckled down and is looking to revive a career that has been stalling badly.
He scored the winning goal for the Squirrels last Sunday against Sudan in a 2010 World Cup qualifier, and Metz hope that he can replicate such form for them next season as they aim for promotion to Ligue 1. At only 23, the powerful striker may finally have found the right club for him.
