Nigeria striker, Anam Imo has signed a new two-year contract extension with Pitea following an exceptional campaign in the Swedish Damallsvenskan this season.
Imo had joined Pitea from rivals, Rosengard in 2021 summer on a three-year deal following the expiration of two-year deal on arriving Sweden from Nasarawa Amazons in 2019.
At Pitea, she has become a cult heroine with the club, scoring important goals that have been keeping the club relevant in the Swedish top flight, finishing a place shy of Champions League.
With the expiration of her contact this October, the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations winner has turned down advances from top clubs to extend her stay until October 2025.
Imo has scored 15 goals with seven assists for Pitea across 25 league games this season surpassing her season record of 10 scored in previous season. She recently emerged winner of the 2023 North Star Award for her incredible performance in Swedish league.
The former Nasarawa Amazons forward scored 37 league goals while at Rosengard and she’s looking forward to her return to Nigeria senior national team ahead of the Olympics.
