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.”
