Nigerian striker Nnamdi Oduamadi is regarded at AC Milan as a player who could develop into a real good player in the future. He was brought to the San Siro in 2009, but he has largely been on loan spells at various clubs like Torino and Genoa.

He recently sealed yet another loan move, and this time it was to Italian Serie B team Brescia. He has made this move in the hope of playing regularly. This being a World Cup year, players want to impress in order to get into the national team squad. Nigeria are expected by the football betting markets to be at the World Cup 2014 unless there was a major surprise.

After sealing loan move, Oduamadi has said that the loan move was not really in his mind. He says that he wanted to stay at AC Milan and fight for a place. Milan were extremely close to selling Brazilian striker Robinho, who entered into the final year of his contract this summer.

They were in discussions with Brazilian club Santos, but the negotiations broke down due to several reasons. Robinho ended up extended his contract with Milan for a further few years. As a result of this development, Oduamadi was aware of the fact that he would not get a lot of chances this season.

“I really wanted to remain at AC Milan but I know it would be to my detriment as Robinho did not make the move to Santos and I did not want to stay on the bench so I decided to accept another loan move. The World Cup is next year and for me to keep making the team (Super Eagles), I need to continue playing regularly and at Brescia I am assured of regular football,” said the 22-year-old after moving to second division team Brescia.
