Super Eagles-eligible striker will join Alaves from Atletico Madrid

The youngster completed his transfer to Atletico Madrid this week, but he will be transferred again.

Samuel Omorodion will be loaned to Deportivo Alaves for a season from Atletico Madrid.

Omorodion scored on his La Liga debut for Granada, losing 3-1 to Atletico Madrid.

Former Spanish Champions Atletico Madrid signed the 19-year-old for €6million after his excellent performance. They wanted to keep the striker at Granada for the rest of the season to obtain playing time and experience.

Laliga does not enable clubs to loan players to their old clubs after activating their release clause.

The Rojiblancos had to consider other choices. Sevilla, Celta Vigo, Cadiz, and Real Betis were interested in signing the 19-year-old striker, according to Soccernet.

Atletico Madrid has agreed to loan Omorodion to Alaves for a season, according to AS.

The contract will not include a buy clause so Omorodion can return to Atleti after the season.

The teenager would try to impress at Alaves, where he would earn more minutes and less attention.
