Nigerian full-back Zaidu Sanusi has completed his transfer to Portuguese champions FC Porto.

 The 23-year-old player has joined the Portuguese giants from fellow Primeira Liga side Santa Clara following a successful 2019/20 season scoring once in 27 appearances.

In 2016, the Nigerian was signed by Gil Vicentebut he was loaned out to Mirandela for two seasons (2016/17 and 2017/18).

In the 2018/19, having signed for Mirandela, Sanusi made 35 appearances for the team from Bragança, scoring three goals and putting on good performances, which caught the eye of Santa Clara and he was recalled by his parent club in July 2019.

Zaidu reinforces FC Porto and signed for five seasons, until 2025,” a club statement read.

The Lagos born defender expressed his happiness after signing for his dream club.

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

“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,” he added.

“I still haven’t talked to him, 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.”

The defender will now look to impress the Nigerian team coach, Gernot Rohr to earn his maiden call up to a competitive Nigerian squad.
