Brentford have completed the signing of Nigerian-born Irish attacker Chiedozie Ogbene, subject to international clearance. The 20-year-old finalised his move on Monday, 29 January, after completing a medical. Chiedozie had been on trial with The Bees earlier this month and has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract after an undisclosed fee was agreed with League of Ireland side Limerick FC for his transfer.
The 2017 season was a breakthrough campaign for Chiedozie after his January move to Limerick from Cork City. He made 32 league appearances for the Super Blues, 29 of them from the start, scoring eight goals. He also played every minute of Limerick’s run to the FAI Cup semi-final, netting in the First Round win over Cobh Ramblers. In total, he made 37 competitive appearances last season, scoring ten goals, to add to his 15 appearances and three goals with Cork.
