Nigerian striker delighted to have signed for the Jambos.

Nigerian striker Abiola Dauda has expressed his delight at joining Hearts and is determined to hit the ground running at his new club.

The 27-year-old striker joins the Jambos on loan from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem until the end of the season. Speaking to Hearts TV this evening, he said:  

“I’m really happy to have signed, it’s been a long day but this has been worth waiting for.

“I’ve had a great welcome here. I spoke with Robbie on the phone and he told me he has followed me for quite a while now, and as a player it is a dream to hear a coach say that.

“Now I have to go on the pitch and show him he made the right decision. I’m really looking forward to meeting my teammates and learning the team’s style of play.”
