Done deals : Manchester City confirm two Nigerian young stars have signed new contracts
With a statement on their official website, Manchester City have announced that seventeen of their players who contributed to the club winning the U18 Premier League national title and Premier League 2 have signed their first professional contracts, with two of the players of Nigerian descent.
Ignoring the fact that he has famous uncles, Tai Sodje needs no introduction after making a splash in his first season in the U18 Premier League in 2020-2021.
A regular on the scoresheet, the 17-year-old finished the season as Manchester City U18s top scorer with 19 goals in 22 appearances, including a hat-trick against Liverpool.
Despite the Citizens fielding a very strong squad in the more prestigious FA Youth Cup, Sodje made his debut in the competition in a 6-1 rout of Birmingham City back in March.
The second Nigeria-eligible striker to sign his first professional contract with Manchester City is Adedire Awokoya Mebude.
In case his name does not ring a bell, Dire is the younger brother of newly-signed Watford winger Dapo Mebude.
