THE Dream Team may not have done well at the on going Afri­can Games in Brazzaville, but the team’s daredevil striker, Junior Ajayi is now a millionaire after be­ing signed on by top Tunisian club CS Sfaxien.

Daily Sunsports gathered yes­terday that Sfaxien got Ajayi, 19, to sign the dotted line for a fee of $1.2m (about N220m). The Nigeri­an teenager was expected to storm the Tunisian city of Sfax next week to begin his adventure with his new club.

According to News24.com the deal was struck after close to one month of negotiations between 36 Lion, the Lagos based amateur league side who owned the play­er’s economic rights, and CS Sfax­ien. Both parties finally agreed terms few hours before the close of the Tunisian transfer market on September 15.

Tunisian intermediary Mah­moud Ouaddeni had embarked on the 2,859 – mile journey from Tu­nis to Brazzaville last week with one thing in his mind: to convince Junior Ajayi to sign for the eight – time league champions, knowing that his stock will rise if Nigeria qualifies for the football event of next year’s Olympic Games.

‘’Junior Ajayi is already a play­er of CS Sfaxien, he has signed a three – year deal and will join the club after the Games. He will be in Tunisian next Wednesday,’’ a source privy to negotiations told news24.
