Kokoette Udo has signed a two-year deal with four-time Nigerian champions Kano Pillars from Dakkada FC.
Following his recent impressive performances for Dakkada, Udo was the subject of massive speculation — with rumours linking him with a move to a host of clubs in the country.
However, the speedster — who has notched two goals and three assists this season — chose to make a switch to Pillars, putting pen to paper on a deal that will see him represent the Masu Gida for the next two seasons.
The Akwa Ibom-born star will be hoping to add to his season tally of two goals when he finally dons the yellow and green colours of the northwest club, who are second in the NPFL standings.
After signing the contract papers alongside his agent, Elderson Uzoubi, in Kano on Tuesday, a delighted Udo said: “It is a dream come true for me. I didn’t see this coming so fast but I am happy to sign for a team like Kano Pillars, one of the best in the country.
“I thank my agent and my former team for making this possible .
“I appreciate my friends, fans and family , too, for their support and I hope to give my best to my new team [Kano Pillars].”
It will be a new adventure for Udo, who has spent the entirety of his professional career at Dakkada.
