Nigerian-born USA women’s football star Toni Payne has resumed full training with Ajax Amsterdam after she finally agreed a two-year contract with the Dutch club.

According to a SCORENigeria report, Payne has already processed her work permit after she first tried out with Ajax earlier this year.

Nigerian-born Payne has thus dumped FC Kansas City of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) who had earlier drafted her.

She was the number 13 overall pick.

The dashing striker, whose parents are from Ibadan, has said she wishes to change her international allegiance to Nigeria after she has represented USA at U17 and U23 levels.

The exciting player, who has been described as “a big-time player”, has always said she hopes to turn professional and preferably to play in Europe.

Toni’s brother, Stephen Payne, is with Portuguese club Estoril and has featured for the USA U20s, who are preparing for the forthcoming U20 World Cup in South Korea.
