Junior Ajayi signs for Libya’s Al-Nasr
Former Al Ahly forward and Nigeria international, Junior Ajayi, has signed for Libyan Premier League side Al-Nasr on a free transfer.
After five years, Ajayi’s journey with Al Ahly ended after the club decided to terminate his contract at the end of last year.
Now, nearly two months after leaving Egypt, Libyan side Al-Nasr announced the signing of Ajayi on their social media accounts, without revealing any details about the agreement.
The 25-year-old had signed for the Red Devils in 2016 from Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien, after having won the Olympic bronze medal with Nigeria.
Junior Ajayi hit the ground running in his first season with the Reds, scoring 12 goals and providing seven assists in 39 games across all competitions.
He kept his form for the majority of his stay in Cairo, making a total of 161 appearances and lifting 11 trophies along the way. These titles include four Egyptian Premier Leagues, two Egypt Cups, two Egyptian Super Cups, two CAF Champions Leagues and the CAF Super Cup.
However, after a series of injuries and the signings of Percy Tau and Luis Miquissone, Ajayi slowly fell down the pecking order under head coach Pitso Mosimane and even failed to make a single appearance for the Reds this season.
