Asisat Oshoala joins Barcelona until end of season

Super Falcons forward Asisiat Oshoala has joined FC Barcelona Femeni from Chinese side Dalian Quanjian on a five-month loan contract deal until the end of the 2018/19 season.

The Catalans announced the signing of the 24-year-old striker on their official website on Thursday evening after she had successfully undergone medicals.

Oshoala made a shock move to Dalian Quanjian in 2016 after previous stints at Liverpool (2015) and Arsenal (2016). She then did well to prove her mettle at the Chinese side as she finished top scorer of the league in her first season in 2017.

The forward has won the African Women’s Player of the Year three times – 2014, 2016 and 2017.

She will hope to make her debut for the Blaugranes in their Primera Division clash with Fundaciôn Albacete on Sunday.
