Transfers: Super Eagles Star Completes Move To Bundesliga Side FC Cologne 1

The number of Nigerian stars in the German top-flight has swelled up by one after the Billy Goats boosted their relegation survival chances with the acquisition of one of the African nations’ top youngsters

German club FC Cologne have completed the signing of Super Eagles forward Emmanuel Dennis on loan from Belgian champions Club Brugge, according to a statement on the Bundesliga side’s official website.

Dennis has been assigned the number 43 jersey by Cologne and
will spend the remainder of the 2020-2021 campaign with the Billy Goats.

The 23-year-old winger burst to limelight in 2019 after netting a brilliant brace for Brugge at the Santiago Bernabeu in a Champions League clash against Real Madrid.

But this season has brought more troubles than good for Dennis, with the young attacker missing several games for Brugge after losing a family member and flirting with disciplinary issues.

“The last six months were not easy for me. I want to play and score goals, and therefore I wanted to make a move in the current transfer window,” said Dennis.

“I am pleased that I’m now at FC. I know what the sporting situation at FC is – therefore, I want to play my part in keeping us in the league by playing and scoring in a top league.”

Dennis will be teaming up with compatriots Tolu Arokodare and Kingsley Ehizibue when he resumes training with his new teammates at Cologne on Wednesday, January 27.

Security camera also captured Dibiah making several trips to the trash, but nothing was found there when police checked. As all these were unfolding, Kelly got a text message from Dibiah saying: “Sometimes I hear voices. My son is in heaven.” She was frightened, especially as she could not reach Nakota on phone, and reported the text to law enforcement. She was unaware of the development with the police at Dibiah’s house and was looking to have Nakota back the next day. Manhunt began and hours later, police found Dibiah in his car, which also had blood stains. Nakota was nowhere to be found. The culprit is being held without bail in a Florida county jail on murder charges. Crime journalist Vic Ryckaert, who tried to speak to him, said he declined to comment, but that his lawyer had sworn to put up “a vigorous defence.” Some accounts say Dibiah, 37, confessed to suffocating Nakota with a bag. Police still have no idea what happened to Nakota’s body. Kelly says she believes Dibiah killed their son to spite her over custodial squabbles. She said: “He dumped his body somewhere and won’t let me know. I feel like it’s another way of hurting me.”

Cologne are battling to avoid the drop following a terrible start to the campaign, with Markus Gisdol’s men occupying one of the bottom three spots on the league table.

The Billy Goats are one of the lowest-scoring sides in the Bundesliga, managing a meagre 15 goals after 18 rounds of matches.
