Nigeria’s Michael Babatunde joins Raja Casablanca


Three-time Caf Champions League champions Raja Casablanca have completed the signing of Nigeria international Michael Babatunde from Ukrainian side FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk on a three-and-half year deal.

The 23-year-old left winger had joined the 2014/2015 Europa League runners-up from FC Volyn Lutsk, but was unable to get regular player time as he featured only twice under manager Myron Markevych.
