Troost-Ekong to Saudi Pro League

Nigeria Captain Troost-Ekong Draws Interest from Saudi Clubs Following Stellar AFCON Display

Nigeria captain William Troost-Ekong has emerged as a target for Saudi Arabian clubs following his exceptional performances at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Nigerian defender has reportedly captured the attention of clubs in the Saudi Professional League, owing to his leadership both on the international stage and with Greek club PAOK.

Troost-Ekong’s standout displays during the AFCON tournament have underscored his influence on the field, particularly in Nigeria’s campaign.

His leadership qualities and defensive prowess have not only been evident with the national team but also with PAOK, where he has played a pivotal role in the team’s success in domestic and European competitions.

The 30-year-old defender has been instrumental in leading the Super Eagles’ defense to an impressive four clean sheets and conceding just two goals as they vie for the AFCON title against Ivory Coast.

Troost-Ekong’s contributions, including two goals scored from penalties, have been pivotal in guiding Nigeria to the tournament final.

The interest from Saudi Arabian clubs highlights Troost-Ekong’s growing profile and the allure of the Saudi Professional League’s competitive landscape.

However, despite the lucrative offers potentially on the table, reports indicate that Troost-Ekong remains content at PAOK, prioritizing the club’s ambitions in Greece and Europe over financial incentives.
