Enugu Rangers striker Chisom Egbuchulam has finally sealed a move away from Nigeria, signing a loan deal with Swedish side BK Hacken.
Egbuchulam who finished as the top scorer of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) last season was initially meant to join Tunisian side, Etoile Sportive Du Sahel.
The move however failed due to the unofficial approach of Etoile Sportive Du Sahel.
The 25-year-old who scored 16 goals and made 11 assists last season has now signed for the 2016 Swedish champions BK Hacken.
He signed a loan deal until the end of the season with an option of a three-year permanent move to the 2016 Swedish Cup champions
"Moving to Europe is a big dream come true for me," Egbuchulam told BBC Sport.
"I thank God for the opportunity and BK Hacken for the platform to play in European football."
Rangers have released a statement confirming the move and also wishing their former striker good luck at his new club.
Egbuchulam has already been called up to the Super Eagles squad for their 2-1 away win at Zambia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in October 2016
