Under-23 national team, Olympic Eagles invitee, Tosin Kehinde is already relishing his season-long loan deal with Randers FC of Denmark, as he says it gives him another opportunity to test his talent in central Europe, and he is hoping to make the best of it.
After lining iout with CD Feirense of Portugal in the past season, the former Manchester United of England youth team player is happy with a huge opening to try his abilities outside Britain.
After training with the Danish Superliga outfit for the first time, the youngster, who was invited to train with Nigeria’s Olympic Eagles in March, ahead of their U23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Libya, said he will gladly don Randers’ number 12 jersey.
He equally wants to help Randers bolster their attack with season-long loan move from Feirense, where he has surprisingly not been able to get his professional debut, des[pite having already clocked 21.
Kehinde, who began his career in England with Manchester City, was offered the opportunity to extend his stay at United at the end of the 2017/18 season, but he opted instead for a transfer to Feirense, and now wants to prove himself at Randers in the new season.
He said: ”The last season did not go as hoped, so I came to Randers with a hunger for playing football, because that is the way you develop.
”There are good opportunities in Randers FC for a young player like me. I have heard very well about Danish football in general, and I look forward to showing the fans what I can on a football field.”
