Dutch club MVV Maastricht have confirmed the loan signing of Nigeria U20 international Kelechi Nwakali from Arsenal.
Nwakali had to be recalled from a loan spell at VVV Venlo due to his lack of first-team opportunities, and has penned a deal that will keep him at MVV for the rest of the 2017-2018 campaign.
”Last season we have already seen that Kelechi is a multifunctional attacking midfielder, who has a nose for the ‘final pass’,” coach Ron Elsen told MVV’s official website.
”He returns in an attacking and dominant way of playing, as MVV wants to use it. He can get away at ’10’, but also as a winger.
”At VVV Venlo he has also shown at Eredivisie that he can be of value for the team in which he plays. At MVV Maastricht, however, he can collect even more minutes of play.
”We know what we can and should expect from him. That has absolutely weighed in our decision to bring him back to Maastricht.”
Nwakali played 34 official matches for MVV Maastricht during the past season, in which he managed to find the net 3 times.
