He has been without a club for over six months, but John Ogun has finally found a new team after signing for Saudi Arabian club Aladalah Club on a free transfer.
The 31-year-old has been without a team since he left Israeli side Hapoel Beer Sheva in July 2019. It resulted in him losing his place in the Super Eagles squad.
But after about seven months of staying without a club, Ogu has finally joined Aladalah who are currently fighting relegation in the Saudi Professional League.
They currently sit 15th in the 16 team table with nine points from 14 matches. Ogu will be hoping to make an immediate impact for them as they attempt to move out of the relegation places.
