Nigeria midfielder Nwankwo Obiora has completed his move to former Portuguese champions Boavista CF after leaving Greek club Levadiakos.

The 26-year-old signed a two-year contract that will keep him at Estádio do Bessa till 2020.

It is the return to the Portuguese Primera Liga after a stint with Académica de Coimbra between 2014 and 2016.

The defensive midfielder is “happy” to have signed with The Panthers and hopes the relationship will yield good results in the upcoming season.

Obiora added that he is ready to knuckle it down and help the club as he relishes the chance to play for such “a historic club.”

“I am very happy to have signed for Boavista. it’s a privilege to be here in a historic club like this. I hope it’s going to be a good year for everybody and I am going to give all for the badge of Boavista. And hopefully it’s going to be a good year for us,” said Obiora to the club’s media.

Obiora was a member of Nigeria’s Super Eagles that won the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa in 2013 under Stephen Keshi.
