Serie A: Dele-Bashiru eager to shine for new club, Lazio

Nigeria midfielder Fisayo Dele-Bashiru has expressed his excitement after linking up with Serie A club, Lazio.

Dele-Bashiru joined the Biancolestti from Turkish Super Lig outfit, Hatayspor, on a season-long loan deal on Sunday.

Lazio have the obligation to sign him on a permanent contract next summer.

The 23-year-old was presented to the media and fans on Tuesday.

Dele-Bashiru stated that he is determined to make a big impact at the club.

“I am very excited to join Lazio. It is a big club, with incredible fans, in a big city. I can’t wait to start the season,” he told the club’s official website.

“The club first showed interest in me in January, but at that point I was just focused on finishing the season with Hatayspor. Subconsciously, however, I already knew what I wanted and that this was the next destination.

“I hope to play as many games as possible, hoping to win some trophies and finish the season in the top four in the league table.”
