However, AEK this weekend heralded the arrival of the player who has signed a three-year deal.
The striker is delighted to team up with the Athens Olympic Stadium side and explained he has been observing their style of play.
“It is a great move and I am happy to be here,” he said, speaking to the club’s website.
“To be honest, I searched the internet, like YouTube, for how the team plays and trains, and I think it will fit my gameplay.
“So I’m happy to be here. I don’t want to talk about myself so much, I think the stadium will ‘talk’ about me.”

Enobakhare was part of the Wolves team that gained promotion to the Premier League after winning the 2017/18 Championship title.
The 12-time league champions AEK are currently third on the league table with 56 points from 29 games, and will hope the addition of the forward will boost their chances of qualifying to play European football next season.
Enobakhare, who had two appearances for the Nigerian U23 team, will look to impress with the Greek side to boost his Super Eagles chances.
The forward could make his debut for his new club when they take on Aris in a Cup tie on Wednesday.
