Both Daniel and Muhammed were part of the 2017 U17 team of Nigeria and have signed three year deals, according to their agent Babawo Mohammed.

”Joel and Ladan are part of the reasons why I travelled to Sweden at the end of last year, and it has paid off now for them. Sweden is a nice place for young players to develop,” he told
