Forgotten Super Eagles Goalkeeper Makes Under The Radar Move To French Side

During the recently concluded January transfer window several Nigerian players were on the move taking advantage of the mid-season window to sort their club futures. OGN tracked most of the popular moves.

However one that escaped our attention involved forgotten senior Nigeria international goalkeeper Dele Alampasu, who was until January playing in the second division in Malta for Pieta Hotspurs.

The 26 year old made good use of the January transfer window to return to Europe by joining French 5th division side Jura Dolois FC located in Dole, which is very close to the Swiss border. He has already played in a game for his new team.

In the game his team drew 1-1 with Besancon FC . They are currently third in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté. For Alampasu this is a new chapter in his bid to get his career which started by winning the best goalkeeper at the U17 World Cup in 2015.

He has constantly failed to nail a spot as first choice at club level and that has stopped him from making the step up to the senior national team although he was called up several times by erstwhile coach Gernot Rohr.
