The Belgian Pro League outfit, KRC Genk has signed Nigeria forward, Tolu Arokodare to replace Paul Onuachu who left for Southampton on January transfer deadline day.

Arokodare linked up with the Smurfs from French Ligue 2 club, Amiens SC.

Arokodare expressed his delight after completing the move.

According to him, “I am very happy to be in Genk. At this point in my career I can’t imagine a better club.

“Together with the team I hope to continue the good results of the first half of the season and to win prizes. Paul leaves big shoes to fill. But I am determined to give 100% for this great club.”

Genk’s sporting director Dimitri Conde explained the reason behind the club’s decision to sign the player.

“Despite his height, he is very agile, fast in the first meters and strong with his head”, de Condé said.

“Tolu is already showing flashes of its class today. In addition, there is also a lot of stretch. Under the wings of our technical staff, he will be able to take major steps forward in the coming years. We have proven with several other young talents that KRC Genk is the ideal environment for this.”
