Troost-Ekong made his senior international debut for Nigeria in 2015 and has since proven himself to be an important part of the Super Eagles’ defense, playing three times at the World Cup in Russia and making six appearances at last year’s African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
He will now join his compatriots Isaac Success and Tom Dele-Bashiru at the club.
