Afeez Aremu has surprisingly joined Ghana Premier League side Inter Allies FC.
The Ghanaian club announced the capture of the midfielder from Westerlo Football Academy and not Akwa United where Aremu played the whole of last season in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and the Aiteo Cup which they won.
The details of Aremu’s move to the Ghana Premier League outfit were not disclosed as he becomes the third player to be signed by the Eleven Is To One.
“We’re pleased to announce that we have reached agreement with Nigerian side Westerlo Football Academy for the transfer of Afeez Aremu Olalekan.
“Becoming the third signing ahead of the new season, Aremu arrived in the country earlier this week and started training with the ‘Eleven Is To One,’” Inter Allies announced on their official website on Wednesday.

Aremu expressed excitement about the move to the Ghanaian side and described it as “a great move” in the development of his career.
“I would like to thank all parties involved in making this deal a successful one, it is a great move for me to come here to develop my career,” he told the club’s website (www.interalliesfc.com).
“I am very excited to be signing for a good club such as Inter Allies. I am looking forward to working with the new coach (Kenichi Yatsuhashi) and the players.”
“I hope to do my best and exhibit my quality to help the team.”
The move to Ghana now gives Akwa United new signing Kelly Kester the chance to fill the void in the defensive midfield role.
At the same time, this switch to Ghana rules Aremu out of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) as he played a key role in helping Nigeria qualify for the tournament meant for players based in their country’s leagues.
