Serie A giant, Inter Milan, has signed Ebenezer Akinsanmiro, a young midfielder from Remo Stars in Ogun State, on a four-year deal.
Remo Stars announced the deal in a statement posted on its website on Tuesday.

Remo Stars described Akinsanmiro as its academy product of the club and part of the team that helped the club gain promotion from the Nigeria National League to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in the 2020/2021 season.
“He also featured in the 2021/22 Nigeria Professional Football League.
Most notably, Ebenezer featured for the academy team, Beyond Limits in The Creative Championship and Viareggio Cup World Football Tournament,” the statement said.
“Everyone at Remo Stars wishes him all the best during his time with Inter Milan,” it added.
