Nigerian academy Beyond Limits have confirmed the departure of another highly rated graduate to Europe.

Beyond Limits Academy has recorded another success after captain Onyebuchi Obasi secured a dream move to Norwegian giants Valerenga FC.

Pulse Sports Nigeria reports that the developmental outfit for Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL, side, Remo Stars, confirmed this on their social media platform.

Beyond Limits’ graduate leaves for Europe

The talented 19-year-old winger joins the Oslo-based club on a four-and-a-half-year contract as he seeks to further his development in Europe.

“The academy can confirm the departure of its captain, Onyebuchi Obasi to five times Norwegian league winners, Vålerenga FC,” the No Limits club posted on X, formerly Twitter.

Obasi has been one of the star performers for Beyond Limits’ blossoming youth squad, driving them to local success, especially in the TCC, with his pace, trickery and eye for goal.

His performances caught the attention of Valerenga scouts over the past year, having impressed with Beyond Limits.

Still a teenager, precocious winger Obasi will be expected to continue his development with Vålerenga before as he looks to stake a claim for first-team minutes.

Obasi’s transfer to Norway was announced moments after another Beyond Limits graduate made headlines in Italy’s Serie A.
