Sevilla FC have completed the signing of Nigerian forward Chidera Ejuke.

The 26-year-old joins the Spanish club as a free agent, having successfully completed his medical examination and agreed to a three-year contract.

The announcement was made on the same day the Spanish side revealed Sergio Ramos would depart the club after a year following a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2023.

Ejuke is Sevilla’s first acquisition of the summer under head coach García Pimienta.

The club, which struggled in La Liga last season, is aiming to bolster its squad with quality players to improve its performance in the upcoming season.

Primarily a left winger, Ejuke is versatile and can play on both flanks.

He will face competition for a spot in the starting lineup and is expected to make an immediate impact.

Before joining Sevilla, Ejuke made 65 appearances and recorded 18 goal involvements for his previous Russian club, CSKA Moscow.

He spent the last two seasons on loan at Hertha Berlin and Royal Antwerp.

Chidera Ejuke was part of the Nigerian national team squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, where he featured in two matches.

Ejuke’s last appearance for the Super Eagles was in 2022 during an international friendly against Algeria.
