Newly capped Nigerian female national team, Super Falcons’ attacker, Roosa Ariyo has promised to give her very best at her new club, UD Granadilla Tenerife of Spain, megasportsarena.com reports.
In the wake of her signing at the Spanish women’s league side, Ariyo, who was born in Finland to a Nigerian father and Finnish mother, said she was happy to pull off the switch and pledged total commitment to aspirations at her new club.
The effervescent lass, who was a member of the Falcons’ squad to the recent USWNT Summer Series in the United States and made her Nigeria debut in a 1-0 loss to Jamaica, is the first player acquired by Granadilla Tenerife ahead of the new season.
The 27-year-old versatile player put pen to paper on a two-year contract that will run until June 2023, after agreeing exit terms from Tikkurilan Palloseura of Finland, where she contributed 15 assists and 21 goals in 25 games over three seasons.
Ariyo, who has also played for Monroe Tribunes, Bridgesport Purple Knights, Honka and Jitex BK, told her new club’s official website: “I am very happy to sign with UDG Tenerife Egatesa. They have given me very good references on how the club works.
“I hope to contribute all my virtues in a very attractive competition and I hope to restore the confidence of the board with goals and good performance. I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates and the fans.”
