The talented left-back has been the subject of widespread interest from European clubs, but he has chosen to embark on a new football adventure in North Africa.

James Ajako showcased his exceptional skills by making 21 appearances for Akwa United during the previous season, racking up an impressive tally of 7 clean sheets, 5 assists, and scoring three goals.

These remarkable performances have earned him a reputation as one of the most exciting young players in the Nigerian Premier Football League (NPFL).

Having featured in NPFL and CAF Champions League matches, Ajako has already proven his worth on the pitch.

Now, he eagerly sets his sights on new horizons in North Africa, ready to leave a lasting impact at FUS Rabat.

It has been revealed that the young football sensation will be handsomely rewarded for his talent and efforts, with an impressive monthly salary of N4,000,000 at his new Moroccan club.

With his determination and skills, there’s no doubt that he has a bright future ahead.
