Maduka Okoye Signs New Contract With Sparta Rotterdam

Super Eagles' number one goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has signed a new contract with Sparta Rotterdam.

Okoye penned a new four-year deal, which will keep him at Sparta until 2025.

The Nigerian international was elated after signing his new deal with the caption; ‘Happy with my new contract’ on his Twitter page.

Okoye had been linked with a move away from the club with Ajax, AZ Alkmaar and Anderlecht all reportedly interested.

But with this newly signed contract, their hopes of getting the 21-year-old goalie has ended.

Okoye only joined Sparta last summer from Fortuna Dusseldorf II.

Sparta’s Sporting director Henk van Stee revealed the Castle Lords were aware of the interest in their Nigerian star, but both parties agreed to continue the relationship.

“Obviously, this meant there was a lot of interest in him, but we both had the intention to continue longer and are very happy that we are extending his contract,” Stee told the club’s official website.
