Nigeria’s Young Female Player of the Year Anam Imo has completed her move from Nasarawa Amazons on a two-year deal to Swedish Damallsvenskan side Rosengard, brila.net understands.
The18-year-old was a sensation during the 2018 Nigeria Women Premier League season, where she became top scorer.
Imo who scored eight goals for Christopher Danjuma’s team, was also impressive when Nigeria won the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana.
On Monday, she was named the 2018 Nigeria’s Young Player of the Year [Female] at the Nigeria Football Federation awards in Lagos.
The former Nasarawa Amazons player has now joined players like Rita Chikwelu, Ogonna Chukwudi, Ebere Orji, Halimatu Ayinde, Osinachi Ohale, Faith Ikidi and Ngozi Okobi who all ply their trade in the Swedish Damallsvenskan.
Rosengard sports director Therese Sjogran, who confirmed the signing of the Nigerian youngster on Friday, has described Imo as an uncut diamond.
“[Imo] Anam can play both as striker and wingback,” Sjogran told media.
“She is an uncut diamond and you should not expect that she goes straight into the starting line with us, but she is a very great talent.”
Imo is currently in the camp of the Super Falcons, where they are preparing for the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
