Super Eagles defender Tyronne Ebuehi has completed a move to Portuguese giants Benfica from Dutch club ADO Den Haag. He joins on a five-year deal.

The 22-year-old, who spent five years at the Hague, linked up with Benfica on a free contract following the expiration of his contract.

“It is a feeling of great happiness to be able to be here in a club of this dimension. It is a dream come true, a great step that I take in my young career,” Ebuehi told Benfica’s official website.

“Benfica is a great club with excellent facilities and is known all over the world.

“The fact that the club plays on the big stage was very appealing to me. In fact, it was very easy to choose Benfica.”

Ebuehi, born in the Netherlands to a Dutch mother and Nigerian father, began his professional career at ADO Den Haag and scored once in 82 appearances for the club.

The right back made his international debut with the Super Eagles against Togo in June 2017, and has played four times since.

Ebuehi was included in Gernot Rohr’s 30-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
