As announced on Barcelona’s website on Tuesday, “FC Barcelona and Enyimba Football Club have reached an agreement for
the transfer until the end of season of the player Ezekiel Joseph Bassey for Barça B.
“The agreement includes a purchase option for two more seasons. The 20-year-old Nigerian striker will undergo medical examination in the next few hours.”
Bassey, who can play as a forward or as a wide man, was one of 23 players in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) All-Star that went for a week tour in Spain following the partnership between the League Mangement Company (LMC) and the Spanish La Liga.
The former Akwa United man has not featured in this season’s NPFL, apparently tidying up the move to Barca.
However, if Bassey impresses at La Masia, he could earn himself a graduation to the senior team join the like of Emmanuel Amuneke and Gbenga Okunowo as the Nigerians to play for the Catalan side at senior level.
