The once bright presence of Nigerian footballer Peter Etebo has dimmed in the eyes of fans, who now struggle to find him in the spotlight of the football world, Soccernet.ng reports. 

Etebo commenced his professional career at Warri Wolves, spending three years there before making his move to European football with Portuguese club Feirense.

During his time at Feirense, Etebo played a pivotal role in securing the team’s promotion to the Primeira Liga, establishing them as a force in the top division.

His talent caught the attention of clubs abroad, leading to a notable transfer to English club Stoke City in June 2018 for a fee of £6.35 million.

Etebo’s Contributions to the Nigerian Squad

Etebo’s international journey with Nigeria commenced on July 27, 2013, with his debut against Côte d’Ivoire, followed by a friendly against Jordan in October 2013.

He played a crucial role in Nigeria’s victory at the 2015 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations, emerging as the tournament’s top scorer with five goals. His standout performance secured Nigeria’s spot at the 2016 Summer Olympics, where he notably scored four goals in the opening match against Japan, despite later facing injury setbacks.

Additionally, Etebo represented Nigeria in the 2018 World Cup, starting in all three group-stage matches, though Nigeria did not progress beyond this stage.

Current Whereabouts of Etebo

In recent times, Etebo has grappled with a string of injuries that have hindered his ability to fully showcase his talent for his clubs. Following his stint at Stoke City, he was loaned out to Getafe, Galatasaray, and Watford, before embarking on a permanent deal with Aris in 2022, eventually ending his contract with Stoke City after these loan spells.

Soccernet.ng reached out to Etebo’s agent for an update on the player’s status, revealing that the Nigerian international is currently in search of a new club, with potential developments anticipated in the upcoming summer transfer window.
