Barcelona on Thursday completed a five-month loan move for the striker until the end of the season after her two-year stint at Dalian Quanjian.

Speaking after her unveiling as a Barça player on Thursday, the Nigerian enthused:

“Obviously this is one of the best clubs in the world. The team has a great history and a good football mindset.”

“I am very excited to play again with Vicky Losada, a great midfielder, with a lot of energy and technique. I have also met Fabiana who helped me make that decision,” the Super Falcons forward said.

“My goal is to strengthen the team and help you win and make history. It’s a great opportunity because I know something great will happen.”
