Golden Arrows sign Nigerian goalkeeper

Golden Arrows have reportedly signed Nigerian goalkeeper Olufemi Kayode amid rumours that two more players have been removed from the Abafana Bes’Thende squad permanently.

Golden Arrows make ninth signing

According to a report from iDiski Times, the lanky stopper from West Africa has agreed a two-year deal that also includes an option to renew for an additional year at the club’s discretion.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper will now ply his trade outside of Nigeria for the first time in his career.

Kayode started his senior career at Akwa United when he was signed as a 22-year-old from an unspecified amateur outfit.

After four years with Akwa, Kayode made the shift to Lobi Stars some 18 months later.

He tried his luck at Enyimba next but failed to nail down a regular starting place and moved to the Sunshine Stars from whom Golden Arrows signed the goalkeeper.

After their accounts were boosted by a significant 10Bet sponsorship, Abafana Bes’Thende signed Kayode as their ninth player this window, joining the likes of Brandon Theron, Bradley Cross, Lungelo Nguse, Nhlanhla Zwane, Angelo Van Rooi, Olwethu Mncube, Tebogo Motloung, and Siyanda Mthanti who was promoted from the club’s own development system.

Kayode has faced South African opponents in the Champions League, being in goal when Sundowns lost to Lobi Stars in Nigeria in the 2018/19 season and also taking on Orlando Pirates in the Confed Cup group-stage in the 2020/21 season.
