Esperance de Tunis have completed the signing of Nigerian international striker Junior Lokosa, the Tunisian giants announced on Monday.

The 25-year-old penned on Monday a two-and-a-half-year contract that will see him ply his trade at the African champions until the summer of 2021.

 Lokosa scored 19 goals in 23 appearances with Nigerian side Kano Pillars to become the Nigerian league's top scorer.

The former Kano Pillars frontman, who made his international debut against Congo last May, was named in Nigeria's provisional list for the 2018 World Cup before he was dropped from the final squad.

Esperance de Tunis was crowned African champions last term after defeating Cairo giants Ahly in the final 4-3 on aggregate.
