"Since January 1st, Victor Osimhen has officially been a part of VfL Wolfsburg. Upon beginning their collaboration with the Ultimate Striker’s Academy, the 18-year-old Nigerian and the Wolves had the intention of definitively finalising the move as from 2017.

"At the training camp in La Manga, the 1,85 meter tall attacker, was officially presented as a Green-White on Thursday", the club announced in a statement.

"We have been intensively observing Victor’s development over a long period and we were able to secure the signing in spite of interest from big clubs from abroad.

Victor‘s profile totally fits into our philosophy of not only developing talented young players from within the club, but also binding foreign players to VfL in the long-term," VfL Wolfsburg’s Sporting Director Olaf Rebbe told the club's website on Thursday.

Osimhen's exploits at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile, where he scored 10 goals as Nigeria claimed the title, attracted Wolfsburg who are currently 13th on the Bundesliga league table after 16 games.
