As reported by Kick Off, Fegor Ogude has ended his three-year stint in Norway to sign for Russian Premier League side Amkar Perm.
Ogude previously played for Valerenga, in the Norwegian top flight, but has opted for a change of scene. The Red and Blacks may not be one of Russia’s more-famous clubs, but the switch will allow the midfielder to sample a higher level of competition.
Ogude endured a mixed 2013. He was a feature in the Nigerian side that became continental champions in South Africa and also travelled to Brazil to participate in the Confederations Cup. However, he was squeezed out of the starting XI by Ogenyi Onazi, who represents a more mobile option in the midfield.
In Russia, Ogude will already find a community of Nigerians—Ahmed Musa was recently a domestic champion with CSKA Moscow, Victor Obinna is also in the capital, with Lokomotiv, while Dele Adeleye stars for Anzhi Makhachkala.
