Nigeria's U-20 striker Kingsley Sokari signed a three-year contract with Esperance de Tunis, the Tunisian side announced on Monday.

The Enyimba striker is one of the hottest prospects in Nigerian football as he produced a string of fine displays with his side this season.

He was instrumental in Nigeria's campaign in last month's FIFA U-20 World Cupو helping the young Super Eagles reach the second round before losing 1-0 to Germany.

The player was reportedly linked with Cairo giants Ahly before the latter denied their interest in signing him..  

The 20-year-old is Esperance's fifth signing in the summer transfer window after Chaker Reguii, Houcine Rabii, Khalil Chammam and Bernard Bulbwa who all joined earlier this month.

Esperance, who lost the Tunisian title this season, are looking to strengthen their squad before the quarter finals of the African Confederation Cup that will start next weekend.

Ahly will host Esperance on Sunday in Suez stadium.
