Former Super Eagles defender who recently joined Akwa United, Juwon Oshaniwa, says he joined the Promise Keepers because they can help him improve to return to Europe.

Oshaniwa, who won the Africa Cup of Nations title with the Eagles in 2013, signed for the two-time Federation Cup winners after being without a club since 2017 after Scottish club Heart of Midlothian released him.

He had played for Lobi Stars and Kwara United before leaving the country.

Oshaniwa, who featured for the Eagles at the 2014 World Cup, was part of the Akwa United team that lost to Heartland in Owerri in a pre season match.

“I joined Akwa United because they are a top side that play good football and they also have good facilities that can help me improve and prepare for the next transfer window in Europe,” he told newsmen.

“I have come to join Akwa United to help the team. I will be willing to contribute my quota whenever I am called upon. I hope to keep doing well to beef up the team.”
