NPFL Transfers: Taye Muritala joins Wikki Tourists from Shooting Stars

Wikkk Tourists have completed the signing of former Nigeria U23 invitee, Taye Muritala, beating off rivals including Gombe United, Nasarawa United and Plateau United.

The versatile defender played a pivoted role in helping the Oluyole Warriors gain promotion into the Nigerian Professional Football League and was widely regarded as one of Shooting Stars’ best young performers of last season.

His move to Bauchi represents something of a bargain for the Giant Elephants given his young age and what he adds to the team.

Speaking to the media after signing the dotted lines on Friday, Muritala said: “I’m delighted to be involved with Wikki Tourists,”

“This is a great opportunity for me to demonstrate my qualities at the highest level and to continue my progress at a club with high ambitions.

“I’m looking forward to starting the NPFL season with Wikki Tourists and I’m going to put all my energy into helping the team achieve its goals at the end of the season.” The 21-year-old told the Media on Friday.
