Porto Sign Nigerian Defender, Sanusi, On Five-Year Deal

Portuguese champions FC Porto have signed Nigerian-international, Zaidu Sanusi, from rivals Santa Clara in Portugal.

The 23-year-old defender joined the Blues and Whites on a five-year deal that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2025.

The Nigerian full-back is FC Porto’s third signing this summer after also acquiring the services of Claudio Ramos and Carraca.

Sanusi will join fellow compatriot and Super Eagles defender, Chidozie Awaziem, who was on loan to Spanish side Leganes in the 2019-20 campaign, at the club.

The defender is looking forward to working with manager Sergio Conceicao and hopes to help the Estadio do Dragao outfit win many titles in the 2020-21 campaign.

“I am extremely happy to play for FC Porto. I can’t explain it, but I am thrilled to wear this shirt,” Sanusi told the club website.

“I hope to do a good job and help the team. We are going to win everything this season.

“The club and the fans can expect me to give everything. I received a lot of messages from FC Porto fans, and that made me happy.

“I still haven’t talked to him [Sergio Conceicao], but I’m sure we will talk a lot. From now on, he’s my coach, so we will be talking a lot, I’m sure. I’m extremely motivated to start working.”
