Dong Thap's Samson Kayode joins Atletico Madrid

According to Marca, Spanish club Atletico Madrid has secured the service of Nigerian striker Samson Kayode Olaleye on free transfer. The 22-year-old spent 4 years playing for Vietnamese clubs, most notable for Dong Thap, where he scored 17 goals this season. Samson traveled to Vietnam at 18 and first played for Than Quang Ninh FC.

However, Samson Kayode will not play for the Madrid-based club right away but was loaned out to Portuguese side Sporting Braga.

  2. Quality striker! Did he went to A.Madrid for a trial or the club came to Vietnam and ask him to sign?

    Really love his finishing.
