Super Falcons of Nigeria midfielder Jennifer Echegini has sealed a transfer from Italian club Juventus to Paris Saint Germain, signing a three-year contract with the Premiere Ligue side.

She moved to Juventus in January from USA based team Florida State Seminoles where she was a fast rising College football player.

She had a tremendous impact during her short stint in Turin, registering 10 goals and 1 assist from 16 appearances before moving to PSG.

Her performances helped Juventus qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League, earned her a spot in the Team of the Year, and she was named the best young player of the season.

Living and playing in Turin has been an amazing journey filled with a lot of growing and learning for me. I will cherish these memories and carry them on to my next journey.”
