Emmanuel Ekpo is set to join Norwegian club Molde FK after signing from MLS club Columbus Crew.

The 24-year old Nigerian winger has penned a three-year contract with the reigning Norwegian Tippeligaen champions and will now depart Columbus to link up with his new club.

Molde forward Daniel Chima Chukwu said he was looking forward to playing alongside his Nigerian compatriot.

“I'm really excited having a brother in Ekpo at Molde FK. He is a quality player and would add value to the team when the new season commences. Currently, we are still in Spain for our pre-season but I just can't wait to see him and welcome him to Molde FK,” he said.

Ekpo spent four years at Crew, making over 100 appearances, but will now suit up for former Manchester United star Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who led Molde to the Norwegian title last season in his first as manager.
