Career

Aide Brown Ideye, born in Nigeria on 10th October 1988 (29 years old), is a powerful striker and goal-scorer, with extensive experience in various European leagues. After beginning his career in his country of origin in 2006, a year later he landed in Switzerland to join the ranks of Neuchatel Xamax (2007-09).

He subsequently joined French Ligue 1 club, FC Sochaux (2009-11), and Ukrainian side, Dynamo Kyiv (2011-14), where coincidentally he scored two goals in a friendly against Málaga CF in the 2013/14 season.

After joining West Bromwich Albion from the English Premier League (2014-15), and Greek outfit, Olympiacos (2015-17) his tour of Europe ended. His remarkable goal-scoring stats sparked the attention of the emerging Chinese Super League, and he signed to Tianjin Teda last year.

Ideye, who is in possession of an EU passport, has accumulated 28 caps (6 goals) with the Nigerian national team, with whom he was proclaimed champion of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

At club level, he won the Superleague Greece with Olympiacos, as well as a Ukrainian Cup and Supercup with Dynamo Kyiv.
