Raheem Lawal has returned to Spain to play for Real Betis, after terminating his contract with Turkish club Mersin idmanyurdu, according to MTNFootball.com.
The 23-year-old Nigeria international midfielder has expressed delights with his move back to the La Liga, where he featured for Atletico Baleares between 2009 and 2012. He has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Betis.
“I am in Spain now, I have signed a deal with Real Betis,” he said.
“I am delighted with this and looking forward to playing for my new team in the La Liga.”
Salary hitches forced Lawal to bring to an end his months spell with Mersin idmanyurdu.
The midfielder who was linked with a move to Turkish outfits Konyasapor and Genclirbirligi in the ongoing January transfer window now joins compatriot Nosa Igiebor at Betis.
