Super Eagles midfielder John Ogu has signed with Saudi Arabia based club Al Aladah according to reports. 

The 32-year-old’s contract with the five-time Israeli champions Hapoel Beer Sheva ended in the summer and has been without a club since then.

The Nigeria international shared pictures of himself in training with the Saudi Arabian club we have identified as Al Adalah FC.

It is unclear if he’s on trial, but there has been no official statement made by the player or club.

Al Adalah FC play in the premier division of Saudi Arabian football, but the team are currently placed 15th on the 16 team league table. In what is their debut season in the Pro Division, Al Adalah FC are fighting for survival and could get relegated.

After stints in Slovenia, Spain and Portugal, Ogu moved to Hapoel Beer Sheva in September 2014 after his contract with Academica de Coimbra was ended by mutual consent.

He had a successful time at the club winning three successive league titles, the 2017 Israeli Cup as well as lifting the Israeli Super Cup twice. Ogu made 190 Hapoel appearances, scoring 18 goals and providing 10 assists.

His time in Israel also saw him recalled to the national team and he was part of the Super Eagles squad at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He played the last group game as Nigeria suffered a shock 2-0 defeat to Madagascar at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
