Never heard of the bloke. Centre half tho, bout time

Played for Celtic for a fair while IIRC - Don't know where he went after that. Nigeria international too.

Would seem sufficient (given he’s a free agent) 

Cover at CB/RB

Can play out the back (some)

Hasn’t been sat on a shelf somewhere for ages- just a couple weeks. Should be able to get up to speed quickly  

If it’s true- sounds good.

Centre half, he exercised a clause to cancel his Hibs contract in the January window. 

EDIT: Has played defensive midfield for Nigeria too.

I've seen him a few times on TV for Hibs and Celtic. He seems to be very similar to Sol Bamba in that he can go from being a man mountain, unbeatable, brick wall of a defender to looking like a pub player.

If teams play to his strengths (ie try and out muscle him or hit it long) he will be a god here and like Bamba at Cardiff, a cult hero. If they get quick balls in and around him and play off his shoulder, he will be more like Dave Walton.

If that's the case, I guess it's a good thing that his defensive partner will either be Keogh (quicker than many) or Tomori (quicker than the majority) to help balance out that weakness.

Totally agree. I like the balance between big unit, muscle and strength and a ball playing Rolls Royce next to them mopping up and errors or stray attacks. Thinking Moore and Leacock, or the inferior vidic and Ferdinand.
