Chidi Nwakali spoke to RedTV after he linked up with The Dons at their Winter Training Camp in Dubai

“It’s good to join a new team, provided my work permit is granted. I felt happy that they welcomed me, and they took to me like a brother the very first time I trained with them.

“It’s nice to play with such players. It has been a pleasure for me and I have been looking forward to playing in a higher league. Aberdeen is a very good move for me and is a very nice place for me to develop as a young player. I played in Norway and the season ended in November, but I’ve been training with Manchester City. I got some days off, came back to training and I think I’m ready.

“One of the most important things from the coach of the national team is he wants players who are really playing every game and he wants players in higher leagues. I’m in one of the leagues so I am looking forward to the call up for the national team and serve Nigeria with my heart.

“Kari is hopefully now my new teammate and at the World Cup it’s going to be a very difficult one for us, but I think the best team will take control. The dream of any player is to play in the World Cup and at the age of 21 it’s going to be great for me and I’m working really hard to achieve that.

“The coach told me what type of player he wants, and I am ready to give the Aberdeen fans whatever they need from me. I will give 100% in the games and on and off the pitch I’m ready to work for Aberdeen. I’m looking forward to it.”
