English Premier League side, Brighton have signed Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun on a free transfer.
Balogun, 29, left German side Mainz at the end of the season before he was snapped up by Brighton on a two-year deal.
Balogun narrowly missed representing Nigeria at the 2014 World Cup due to injury.
However, coach Gernot Rohr has named him in the Super Eagles’ 30-man provisional squad for the World Cup.
Alongside William Troost-Ekong, Balogun sits in the heart of Nigeria’s defence that helped qualify for the tournament with a game to spare.
