Ex-Flying Eagles star undergoes Slavia Prague medical as potential Peter Olayinka replacement

Nigerian football prodigy Muhamed Tijani is set to make a highly anticipated move from Baník Ostrava to Slavia Prague, according to reports from Soccernet.ng. The 22-year-old forward has already undergone a comprehensive medical examination at the renowned Eden Stadium, and both clubs are currently engaged in negotiations to finalize the remaining transfer details.

Tijani’s contract with Baník Ostrava is set to expire in December 2024, and the club has decided to cash in on the young player’s potential. Slavia Prague, on the other hand, see Tijani as the perfect candidate to fill the void left by his compatriot Peter Olayinka, who recently left the club after a remarkable five-year tenure.

Olayinka’s influential presence saw him amass an impressive tally of 43 goals and 23 assists in 170 games, predominantly as a winger. Tijani, meanwhile, is no stranger to Czech football. The Kaduna-born forward initially joined Baník Ostrava’s youth system from Nigerian side 36 Lion FC on September 27, 2018, and his impressive skills earned him a professional contract with the club on August 27, 2019.

Since then, Tijani has enjoyed loan spells at Třinec (twice) and Karviná, before returning to Baník Ostrava and making his debut in the 2022-23 Czech First League. Throughout the campaign, the young striker showcased his brilliance, notching an impressive eight goals and providing two assists in 27 league appearances for Baník Ostrava.

The promising forward, a former member of the Flying Eagles, represented Nigeria’s under-20 squad in the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

With Tijani’s talent and potential, there’s no doubt that he’ll be a valuable addition to Slavia Prague’s squad. Football fans around the world will be eagerly anticipating his move, and it will be interesting to see how he fares in the Czech First League and beyond.
