The Rhapsody FC Abuja former player penned down his signature for Chang'an Athletic FC and was unveiled for the 2020/2021 season, but a week to the close of the registration period it was Suzhou Dongwu FC that finally pulled through with his ITC with the NFF.

The young lad was the favorite striker at Chang'an Athletic but contractual agreements between the club and his agent Mr. Austin Akpehe landed him a 4 months short loan until January 2021, with Suzhou Dongwu FC with an option to buy for 3 years. The striker was instrumental in the club's first win of the season.

Galaxy Sports Development China made this deal happen through the platform it provided for numerous young Nigerian players in their scouting event in Abuja last year.

Galaxy Sports Academy was instrumental in exposing the young Nigerian striker by including the young lad in their playing tour in Ghana before sending him to China.

Mr. Godwin Bamigboye and Austin Akpehe made the tripartite collaboration between Rhapsody FC, Galaxy Sports Academy and it's Chinese partners a success. The parties through this tripartite agreement, therefore, consented to invest in the player in other to reap the benefits therein.

Mr. Austin Akpehe is an ardent believer in grassroots football development within the African region.
