Dundalk have completed the signing of former Tottenham Hotspur attacker Nathan Oduwa.

The 24-year-old came through Spurs' academy, heading on loan to Luton Town, Rangers, Colchester and Peterborough before leaving the London club in 2017 for Slovenians Olimpija Ljubljana.

After that, Oduwa had a stint with Danish outfit Vejle Boldklub - where he played alongside current Dundalk midfielder Sean Murray - and he most recently lined out for Israeli top-flight side Hapoel Hadera.

He represented England at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-20 level before featuring four times for Nigeria's Under-23s in the build-up to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

"Nathan is someone we have tracked for a while," said Dundalk boss Vinny Perth.

"He trained with us last week and we were really impressed with him. He can play left wing, right wing and we also feel he could operate as a centre forward.

"Career-wise, he probably made a couple of wrong decisions over the past couple of years but he’s got real pedigree and this is the first time he has felt at home in a group for a long time.

"He’s had loads of options and he has been to lots of different clubs over the past few months but this felt more like a home move for him. It’s an opportunity for him to rebuild his career."

Oduwa admitted his knowledge of the Lilywhites, and the League of Ireland generally, was limited, but he's been impressed with what he's seen.

"My agent told me to come over and have a look at Dundalk and I was surprised at the standard and the facilities, to be honest," he said.

"In England, they don’t really talk about the League of Ireland too much but the gym facilities, changing rooms and canteen here are of European standard.

"I’m only 24 but I’ve travelled to a lot of places and I’ve learned a lot. The world of football can be very cut-throat and players like to have security and be somewhere where they are happy to play and express themselves and I feel like I have that at Dundalk. I’m just raring to go now."
