Liverpool FC Ladies have announced the signing of Azeezat Oshoala from Nigeria Women League champions Rivers Angels for an undisclosed fee.

Oshoala, 20, was recently named African Women’s Player of the Year by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) following her breakthrough 2014 season.

She helped Rivers Angels win back-to-back Nigeria Professional Women’s Football League (NPWFL) titles in 2013 and 2014 and last year’s Federation Cup.

Liverpool Ladies retained the Women’s Super League championship on the final day of the 2013/14 season and have now added the Nigerian in time for their title defence and the Uefa Champions League campaigns.

On completing transfer formalities, Oshoala told the club’s website: “Liverpool Ladies are a massive Club who have some fantastic players who I believe can help to develop my game to the next level. It was also a big incentive to be able to play in the Uefa Women’s Champions League which is a huge competition and one I’m confident we can do well in.”

Oshoala was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) at the 2014 Fifa U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada, where the Super Falconets finished runners-up behind Germany, and at the African Women’s Championship (AWC) and the Federation Cup, both same year.

She is in line to make her first World Cup appearance with the Falcons again in Canada in June after helping the senior internationals claim a record-extending seventh AWC title in Namibia.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to have signed Asisat as she is one of the World’s top young footballers,” Liverpool Ladies manager, Matt Beard said. “This signing is definitely one that the supporters can be extremely excited about.”
