The 20-year-old midfielder follows the footsteps of many Nigerian greats that have played for the Sporting purple and whites
Super Eagles prospect Ishaq Abdulrazak has signed for 34-time Belgian champions Anderlecht on a four-year contract from Swedish side Norrkoping.
Abdulrazak moved to Europe in May 2020 joining Norrkoping from Unity academy in Nigeria. And he quickly slotted into the team, scoring two goals in 14 appearances.
The 20-year-old is an aggressive player with a lot of pace to burn. Also, Abdulrazak is quite versatile, switching between midfield and fullback positions with ease.
Becoming a first-team player at Norrkoping did not take him time, as he made 31 Allsvenskan appearances for Norrkoping in his second season.
His displays have been impressive, raising eyebrows at Anderlecht.
And in a release by the club earlier on, they shared photos of the 20-year-old in the club’s colors to announce that they had signed Abdulrazak. The midfielder joins on a four-year deal.
Stephen Keshi, Philip Osondu, and Celestine Babayaro are just some of the few Nigerian that have donned Anderlecht colors. And with his move, Abdulrazak joins the elite list.
The 20-year-old played for Nigeria at youth level, and if he continues to impress at his new club, it would be only a matter of time before he gets his first call up to the Super Eagles.
