It’s now official, French champions Lille have acquired the services of Nigeria’s keeper Vincent Enyeama for the next four years, the player said on Friday.

“I can confirm that I have finally signed a four-year deal with Lille of France and I am happy that the move will boost my performance for Nigeria and the club," Enyeama told Nigerian newspaper Complete Sports.

The 28-year old keeper had been in negotiations with the French giants for weeks before completing the move on Friday.

Enyeama has spent the past six years playing in Israel but his impressive performances during the World Cup in 2010 brought him to the attention of European clubs.

It is not clear whether he will be Lille's first choice keeper but he has already said that it doesn’t matter because he is ready to fight for his place at a new level of competition.
