November 18, (THEWILL) – Czech giants Slavia Prague have announced major updates regarding the futures of two of their Nigerian wingers, 19-year-old Boluwatife Victor Ogungbayi and 21-year-old Moses Usor. Ogungbayi, who joined from Nigerian club, Ilaji FC, has been rewarded for his strong performances with a new long-term contract until June 2028 after impressing for the club’s U19, B and first teams.
Despite his young age, Ogungbayi has already made his European debut for Slavia Prague, playing in their 6-0 thrashing of Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League earlier this season. He has netted an impressive 16 goals across all youth levels. The new five-and-a-half-year contract is a sign of the club’s faith in Ogungbayi’s ability and potential.
In contrast, Usor has brought his two-year spell at Slavia Prague to an end by agreeing on a permanent transfer to Austrian Bundesliga outfit LASK Linz, whom he has signed for until summer 2028. Usor made 28 appearances for the Czech side, scoring his only European goal against Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.
LASK, currently third in Austria’s top division, exercised their option to purchase Usor after he impressed on loan. Slavia Prague will be disappointed to lose the young winger, but the transfer fee could aid their efforts in the transfer market. Usor will be hoping the move can boost his development and career prospects.
The diverging futures of Ogungbayi and Usor demonstrate Slavia Prague’s eye for young African talent. Ogungbayi’s new deal reveals their belief in his potential, while Usor’s permanent transfer to Austria could give him the platform to thrive long-term.
