In a bid to fortify their ranks and steer clear of the looming NPFL relegation zone, Sporting Lagos has officially welcomed two key players, Wisdom Fernando and Tochukwu Michael, as their first signings of the January transfer window.

Formerly with NPFL champions Akwa United, Wisdom Fernando brings six seasons of experience, notably contributing to their 2021 season triumph, Footballrover reports.

With a flair for versatility in the attack line, his fleet-footed style and impressive technique are poised to be valuable assets as Sporting Lagos look to venture into the second half of the season.

Tochukwu Michael, an equally dynamic addition, arrives at the Tech Boys with a robust midfield presence, having previously featured for Nasarawa United, Plateau United, and Remo Stars.

Known for his ability to score goals during his stellar season with Nasarawa United, Michael is expected to strengthen Sporting Lagos’ creative side.

Expressing his enthusiasm, Wisdom Fernando assured fans of his dedication to the team:

I’m so excited to be joining this club. Coach Paul was insistent on bringing me here, and I can’t wait to get started and give the fans the excitement they deserve.”

Tochukwu Michael, optimistic about his return to Lagos, conveyed his eagerness to contribute:

This is a new start for me, and I am glad to be playing in Lagos again. The fans make the atmosphere one of the best I’ve seen around, and I hope I will bring smiles to their faces.”

Sporting Lagos, currently grappling with the aftermath of a 3-1 defeat to Bendel Insurance, has strategically assigned jersey numbers to the new acquisitions—Fernando donning the number 14 and Michael opting for the number 26.

The duo aims to play key roles in elevating the team from its 16th position, just one point away from the relegation zone, in the upcoming matches.
