Jamilu Collins to undergo medicals at Cardiff City

Cardiff City are set to announce the signing of Nigeria international, Jamilu Collins, from SC Paderborn on a free transfer.

English EFL Championship club, Cardiff City are set to announce the signing of Nigeria international, Jamilu Collins, from SC Paderborn on a free transfer.

Collins will become the club’s fourth signing pending the outcome of his medical (May 19th), WalesOnline reports.

Following the expiration of his contract with Bundesliga 2 club SC Paderborn, where he spent the previous five seasons, the 27-year-old is expected to join on a free transfer.

The player’s versatility is a significant positive, as he can play center-back, wing-back, and on the left side of midfield, although his favorite position is left-back.

Cardiff desperately need to strengthen this position. The Bluebirds are resigned to the idea that former loanee Ryan Giles has his sights set on a Premier League loan next season, with Joel Bagan the only recognized senior left-back.

Collins, on the other hand, was spotted by Cardiff’s recruitment squad earlier this year and has been monitored by the club ever since. He played 90 minutes for Nigeria in their 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, and Cardiff were there to see.

The Bluebirds also sought references on the player from contacts in this country. Former Cardiff defender Semi Ajayi, who is now at West Brom and was Collins’ international teammate, is said to be one of those who gave a favourable recommendation.

Cardiff were to cast their net further afield this summer, according to WalesOnline, in the hopes of finding bargains on the European market. Collins is expected to be just that, according to club insiders.

He spent five seasons with Croatian club Rijeka before joining Paderborn, where he shone like a million stars.

Collins has appeared for the Super Eagles in 25 games.

An official announcement is expected in the next 48 hours.

Aston Villa join Crystal Palace and Brentford in race for Joe Aribo

It’s worth mentioning that Aribo’s contract with Rangers expires on July 1, 2022, and he has expressed no desire in extending it, which has piqued the interest of Premier League clubs.

Aston Villa is the latest Premier League club to reportedly express interest in signing Rangers’ Joe Aribo during the summer transfer window.

It’s worth mentioning that Aribo’s contract with Rangers expires on July 1, 2023, and he has expressed no desire in extending it, which has piqued the interest of Premier League clubs.

According to the Sun, Aston Villa have joined the hunt for Aribo, who previously worked with current Lions manager Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

Brentford and Crystal Palace, among others, have taken notice of the versatile midfielder’s performances for the Light Blues this season.

Instead of letting the 25-year-old walk away for free at the end of next season, the Gers may cash in on him this summer.

If Aribo’s move to Aston Villa goes through, he may be the ideal midfield partner for Philippe Coutinho, who just signed a permanent deal.

The Nigerian has shown his versatility by putting in strong performances as a box-to-box midfielder, right winger, and false nine.

The Asian champions already have Odion Ighalo, but they could be trying to create a Nigerian combo in attack. 

At Trabzonspor, Nwakaeme has entrenched his reputation. The 33-year-old has been at the club for four years, but this is his most fruitful season.

The former Hapoel Beer Sheva star has 11 goals and ten assists for the Black Sea Storm, who have won their first league title in 38 years.

His time at Trabzon, however, appears to be drawing to a close, as he has declined to extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season.

Nwakaeme is requesting higher salary at the end of his career, but Trabzonspor is unwilling to give up and risk losing him this summer.

Al Hilal is keeping an eye on his status, according to Ajansspor, and could step in if his contract with the Turkish Champions-elect expires.

If Nwakaeme joins the Saudi Arabian team, he will join compatriot Odion Ighalo, who has been on fire since leaving Al Shabab in January. In 14 games with Al Hilal, the former Watford striker has scored 12 goals.

David Okereke set for return to Club Brugge

Okereke joined Venezia on a season-long loan from Belgian champions Club Brugge in August, after bagging promotion to the Italian Serie A.

The Italian top flight is down to its last four rounds, and the Winged Lions will need a miracle to avoid relegation.

According to Calcio Mercato, if Venezia FC is demoted from Serie A at the end of the season, David Okereke will not be given a permanent contract.

Okereke joined Venezia on a season-long loan from Belgian champions Club Brugge in August, after bagging promotion to the Italian top flight via the play-offs.

He has not been a flop in Italy, with six goals and one assist in 29 Serie A matches – the third-highest goal output of any Venezia player.

Despite the 24-year-old’s contribution, Venezia are still rooted to the bottom of the league standings, six points adrift of safety with only four games remaining.

With a return to Serie B becoming more likely by the day, Venezia are refusing to use their option to sign Okereke on a permanent basis.

The possibility of returning to Club Brugge, where he only appeared in one league match last season, would not excite the Nigerian striker.
