Sources close to Olanrewaju Kayode have suggested the player has completed a signing with EPL club, Manchester City but will be loaned out this season.
Kayode, 24, will join newly promoted La Liga side, Girona FC on a season long loan.
An official confirmation is now being expected.
In a message on his Instagram, ‘Larry’ as he is nicknamed said he has signed a four-year contract with City and will immediately join partner club Girona FC on a season-long loan deal.
Sounding ecstatic about his new adventure, Kayode said: “Am blessed…its time to kick some Ass and play good football…Thanks to the real LK8 fans and family…We love you all”
No fee is known yet, but City have acquired a 24-year-old with a proven goal-scoring record in Austria, having been the top scorer in the country’s top flight last season. He previously played for Maccabi Netanya in Israel and ASEC Mimosas in the Ivory Coast, and also had several loan spells including a stint with FC Luzern in Switzerland.
It was reported that he arrived England to discuss a deal with Newcastle United only to get a call from Pep Guardiola to head to the Etihad.
The Nigeria striker reportedly had his medical at City and “will return to his base to rejoin the family before they head out to Spain,” per scorenigeria.com
