Dalian Quanjian F.C striker, Asisat Oshoala, welcomes Super Falcons teammate, Onome Ebi to China.
This follows confirmation of the defender’s move to Chinese second division side Henan Huishang FC on Wednesday.
“Allah Is The Greatest. Congrats sis and welcome to China,” stated the African Women Player of the Year.
She last featured for FC Minsk in the Belarusian Premier League.
Ebi, 34, who last played for FC Minsk is delighted to be back playing football again 15 months after fracturing her hand.
“Thank to God almighty for making this possible. I’m back in football again and to say I am super excited is to put what I am feeling mildly. I want to thank everyone who has been with me on my journey to recovery and has helped to make this possible.
“I want to single out my management team for being a strong support system and making sure this transition was very smooth,” Ebi was quoted in the media statement.
“I can’t wait to play football again for my club and country. I have survived one of the biggest challenges of my career and I am in a happy place to once again do what I love best.”
Ebi was part of the Super Falcons team that won the African Women’s Cup of Nations in Cameroon where she fractured her hand.
