Nigerian left fullback, 23, joins FC Porto
Zaidu reinforces FC Porto and signed for five seasons, until 2025. The Nigerian left fullback, 23 years old, arrived in Portugal in 2016 to play for Gil Vicente, but was loaned to Mirandela for two seasons (2016/17 and 2017/18). In 2018/19, having signed for Mirandela, he played 35 matches for the club from Bragança, scoring three goals and putting on good performances, which caught the eye of Santa Clara. In Azores, in the long 2019/20 season, the fast and powerful left fullback played 27 goals and scored a goal. Starting today, Zaidu plays for the national champions, FC Porto, and is the third new arrival in the squad led by Sérgio Conceição, following Cláudio Ramos and Carraça.
