Super Eagles defender Jamiu Alimi has joined Akwa United till the end of the Nigerian Professional Football League current season.
Alimi who started the 2016/2017 season with Kano Pillars, struggled to retain his place in the starting line up under new coach Kadiri Ikhana, but has signed a six month deal with the Promise Keepers with an option to sign permanently at any point between now and when the season ends.
The 25 year old former Shooting Stars defender said he would work hard to repay Coach Abdul Maikaba who handed him another opportunity of regular football in the NPFL.
Alimi is expected to make his debut for Akwa United in their away clash against MFM.
