Nigeria international Tyronne Ebuehi has completed his transfer to newly-promoted Italian Serie A side Venezia FC.

The 25-year-old defender has joined the Winged Lions from Portuguese giants SL Benfica on a season-long loan deal with an option to be signed permanently.

Ebuehi spent the recent 2020/21 season on loan at Dutch side FC Twente where he enjoyed regular game time after struggling to break into the Benfica starting line-up.

Having won promotion from Serie B to Serie A via playoffs during the 2020/21 season, Venezia have strengthened their defence with the signing of Ebuehi.

“Venezia FC announces that today the agreement with SL Benfica has been signed for the passage in Gli Arancioneroverdi with the formula of the annual loan with obligation to buy in case of stay in Serie A of the player Tyronne Ebuehi,” a statement from the club website read.

“The defender, born in Haarlem in the Netherlands and also holding Nigerian citizenship, played for FC Twente last season, scoring one goal and one assist.

“He grew up in ADO Den Haag, a club with which he made his debut in the Eredivisie in the 2014/15 season, and was signed by Benfica with whom he played seven games in the Liga Revelacao U23 and six games in Liga Portugal 2 in the 2019/20 season.

“During his career, Ebuehi also played 10 matches for Nigeria, including an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match and a World Cup match. Welcome Tyronne!”

Ebuehi was part of Nigeria’s 23-man squad at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia. (African Football)
