Obasi Onyebuchi joins Vålerenga FC from Beyond Limit FA

Published on: 27 February 2024

Obasi Onyebuchi's transfer from Beyond Limits Football Club to Vålerenga FC has been completed. The 18-year-old Nigerian winger showed up at the Marbella training camp on Sunday morning, having inked a deal that would last until 2028, Nigeriasoccernet.com can confirm.

The scouting staff has been watching Onyebuchi for a while, and Vålerenga was the one that signed the talented player who has a bright future ahead of him among a lot of other interested parties. He is now ready to flaunt his royal blue attire for the Capital Club.

"This is my dream, and I am very happy to be here. I come here to win, and to take the next step in my career", he says modestly after completing his move.

Sports director Joacim Jonsson is delighted to have Obasi in place with the rest of the squad, and says the following about the winger who has now signed.

"If I were to compare Obasi with a player who has been at the club before, I would say Chidera Ejuke. They are quite similar in player type, but Obasi is probably a bit further along than Chiddi was at the same age".

"He is a great talent, but we cannot expect him to come here and deliver from day 1. He can of course do it already this year, but it can also take one or two years", Jonsson added.

"This is a player we will help develop, and who we can hopefully enjoy for a long time. We have followed him for a long time, and are looking forward to seeing what he can achieve in the royal blue suit, concludes Jonsson.
