Nnamdi Ofoborh agrees new contract

Midfielder extends his stay at Swindon Town

6 June 2024

Swindon Town midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh has agreed a new contract at the club, subject to EFL approval.

The 24-year-old featured in every Sky Bet League Two game after his arrival as a free agent back in March, and will continue his stay at the County Ground for the upcoming 2024/25 campaign. 

The 24-year-old began his career with AFC Bournemouth and enjoyed a fruitful two-year spell with the club’s U18s, including captaining them in his second year and also being named the Cherries' Young Player of the Season in 2017–18.

Ofoborh followed this up with a successful loan spell with League One side Wycombe Wanderers in 2019-20 and played his part in the club's promotion from the third tier into the Championship, whilst also scoring a goal of the season winner against Fleetwood in their semi-final first leg during that time.

After earning international recognition, with Nigeria U20s where he was part of the Under-20 World Cup finals in Poland in 2019, making three appearances in the tournament.

Having made appearances against Qatar U20s and Ukraine U20s, the Flying Eagles later advanced to the knockout stage against Senegal, which saw Ofoborh start the round of 16 clash before falling to an unfortunate 2-1 defeat.

Following this, the midfielder then spent two years with Scottish giants Rangers, before departing the club at the start of last season and the midfielder made quite the impression since joining Swindon a few months ago notably his man-of-the-match performance against Barrow in April. 

Upon signing a new contract with Swindon, Nnamdi Ofoborh said: "I'm thankful to Jesus Christ for this opportunity, these are things that I've prayed for and I'm just grateful for the club to give me this platform and home to become mine."

"Building on last season, I hope I can help the team and the squad grow as much as possible. The fans last season were amazing, particularly the away support. We need to give the fans so much more to cheer about and that's the plan for me."

"Next season is going to be all about a new book, a new chapter, and with the new faces joining us at the club alongside the new manager, we can use this to push us in the right direction next season."

Head Coach, Mark Kennedy added:
"I’m delighted that Nnamdi has signed a contract with Swindon Town. I've watched his games back from last season and I’m really looking forward to working with him as he brings not only a physical presence to the team but technical quality too."
