“I will do my medical on Monday and hopefully should be very much part of the team after that,” Azeez informed MTNFootball.com
The promising midfielder was initially refused a work permit by the Spanish embassy in Nigeria, but Almeria appealed against that decision before he was eventually granted his papers to work in Spain.
Also for Almeria medical Monday is Azeez Flying Eagles teammate, Stanley Okoro, who has signed a two-year deal with option for an extension.
After fine displays as Nigeria’s Flying Eagles reached the last eight of the FIFA U20 World Cup in Colombia, they have had to fend off interests from bigger European clubs for Azeez, who can play either as a defensive or attacking midfielder.
Another U20 star, Aliyu Mohammed, has already settled down at Spanish club Villareal.
Left back Mohammed was axed from the final World Cup squad to Colombia after he failed to join up with the rest of the squad in Portugal.
