“FK Haugesund is very happy to sign Segun Otusanya. He is a good boy with a lot of talent. We are looking forward to exploring his talent and hopefully develop him to a successfull footballer,” says Eirik Opedal, FK Haugesund’s Sporting Director.
The teenage striker has signed for Haugesund who finished tenth in the Norwegian top flight last term on a season-long loan deal with an obligation to buy at the end of it.
Otusanya who is renowned for his huge sense of positioning and incredible finishing instincts will join a long list of Nigerian footballers to have donned the colours of Haugesund; a list which includes Super Eagles assistant captain William Troost-Ekong.
FK Haugesund will open their campaign in the new Eliteserien League season on Monday April 10 with a trip to newly promoted side SK Brann.
