Israeli second division club Hapoel Katamon have the signing of Nigerian forward Yusuf Sulaiman Boyi as a replacement for Williams Agada who joined Maccabi Tel Aviv a month ago.
Agada’s takeoff left a vacuum in Hapoel Katamon attacking line-up, and Boyi was acquired as his replacement on a loan deal with the option of a three-year deal toward the finish of his loan spell.
Boyi arrived Israel few days prior and quickly got on the pitch for his new team in a friendly game by netting a brace in what was his first game for Hapoel Katamon.
An indefatigable winger, who is honored with burning pace and the ability to finish off a move, Boyi is expected to advance from the U19 to the first team before the end of the current campaign.
He was found by the same scout who found William Agada, Bauchi based scout Abba Nasir Manna prominently referred to as “Sergio”, and his nearby ties with Israeli agent David Ouziel earned Boyi the shot with Hapoel Katamon.
As indicated by Nasir, Boyi almost joined NPFL giants Kano Pillars before he spotted him, and recommended him to Ouziel.
Nasir speaking in an interview with owngoalnigeria.com said: ” Boyi is one of my best discoveries after Agada. He was close to joining Kano Pillars before I spotted him, and spoke with my partner Ouziel, who gave him the option of Hapoel Katamon as a replacement for Agada”,
” He is a young lad, who still has some way to go in his career, and hopefully he will progress as expected at Hapoel Katamon, he is a gifted footballer”.
