Ini Umotong: Nigeria striker joins Uganda's Violah Nambi at Vaxjo

Swedish Damallsvenskan club Vaxjo have secured the services of Nigeria striker Ini Umotong on an 18-month deal.

The Nigeria international becomes the latest addition to Magnus Olsson's team after parting ways with English side Brighton in June.

Umotong decided against extending her stay with the Seagulls following the cancellation of the English Women's Super League season on May 25 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 26-year-old joined Brighton in 2017 after being spotted at Oxford, where she emerged the WSL 2 top scorer, scoring 13 goals in 19 outings and went on to net four times in seven games in 2016.
