Former Super Eagles defender wants his countryman to move to the British capital as playing there comes with better visibility

Sam Sodje, a former Reading defender has asked Joe Aribo to consider a move to Brentford ahead of next season.

“Aribo coming in he has to go to a football club that he has to get games. If they can come to Brentford, it’s a great signing for Brentford and for them.”

Aribo who had a good 2021/22 season with Rangers has been a subject of transfer interests from different clubs, with Aston Villa also believed to be interested.
