The former Super Eagles forward last represented Spanish second division side UD Almeria. The 34-year old’s presence adds further steel and experience to the frontline of the Lions.

The striker has previously represented the likes of Levante, Espanyol in Spanish La Liga and Bordeaux in the French Ligue 1. He has also scored 5 times for Nigeria in 36 appearances, including 2 goals in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Kalu began his career with Nigerian side Enyimba International before moving to Wisla Krakow in Poland, where he won the top division title thrice and the Polish Cup on two occasions. Kalu then went onto represent Almeria for 6 seasons, helping the side achieve promotion to the Spanish top division.

The veteran forward has also had short spells in Turkey with Kasimpasa and in Qatar with El Jaish and Al Rayyan.

“I am happy to welcome Kalu to the Delhi Dynamos squad this year. Kalu brings a lot of experience to the team having played for Nigerian national team, has had over 175 appearances for Almeria, as well as having played in the ISL in 2015. He will bring toughness both mentally and physically to the team and I look forward to seeing him make a mark on the ISL this year,” Delhi Dynamos Director Rohan Sharma said.

We look forward to welcoming Uche to Delhi Dynamos.
