KAA Gent Nigerian sensation Gift Orban is already dreaming of playing in the English Premier League in the near future after lighting up the Belgian Jupiler League on Sunday, scoring four goals in his side’s 6-2 humbling of Zulte Waregem.
The 20-year-old has hit the ground running since completing a €3m move to the Belgian side during the January transfer window from Norwegian outfit Stabaek.
Orban has scored eight goals in nine appearances in all competitions for the 2014/15 Belgian League winners, a January move that has proved to be worth every amount for the Belgians who are chasing a championship playoffs spot.
After his super performance, Orban says although he’s hit the ground running with impressive performances, he needs to keep working and developing himself as he’s yet to reach the level it takes to play in the Premier League which is a dream place for him to play his football.
“My level has to be even higher if I ever want to play in the Premier League. There is still a lot of work to be done.”
After his performance this season, the Nigerian will be on the radar of some of the top clubs in Europe.
