Ojo joins Genk



Nigerian forward, Kim Ojo, has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at former Belgian champions, K.R.C. Genk.

Ojo, who has been Brann's most prolific goal-scorer for the past two seasons will have to contend for a place in Genk's attack with club captain and top scorer, Jelle Vossen.

According to Bran's website, the deal was finalised on Monday and Ojo, who had one year left on his contract with Brann, will be presented by his new club Genk on a press conference, on Tuesday.

Brann's head coach, Rune Skarsfjord, applauded the contributions of Ojo to the club. "Kim came to us two years ago on a free transfer and he's been the league's most valuable player in terms of goals and assists since that. We have a lot to thank him for, and we wish him all the best”, Skarsfjord told the club’s website.

Ojo played in 57 of Brann's 60 league matches over the past two seasons, scoring 26 league goals and making 15 assists during his spell at Brann, 33 goals in 69 matches in total, including the Norwegian Cup.

The Nigerian started his European career with Norway’s lower division side, Nybergsund IL-Trysil, in 2008.

Genk has sent their former Nigerian striker, Kennedy Nwanganga, on loan at Beerschot AC.
