Premier league giants Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City and Brighton & Hove are facing difficulties in signing Nigerian winger Kitan Aaron Jaiyeoba, according to Allnigeriasoccer.com

The English clubs showed interest in the 21-year-old Nigerian player but there is a hitch in the signing process as Jaiyeoba does not have a British or European Union passport and also has no caps for Nigeria Super Eagles.

Jaiyeoba, nicknamed Kato, is currently studying for a degree at SGS College in Bristol whilst training full-time with ex-Leeds United manager and former Hull City winger David Hockaday. 

Kato has been likened to Liverpool’s Sadio Mané for his incredibly fast moves causing a constant threat to the opposition.

“He is one of the quickest players I have seen with and without the ball, he can be playing in Europe’s top clubs within 18 months, ” David Hockaday said on Jaiyeoba. 

Jaiyeoba has participated in showcase games against professional clubs in England such as Queens Park Rangers, Reading and Nottingham Forest where he caught the attention of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
