German-born striker of Nigerian descent, Emmanuel Iyoha, has signed a new contract with German Bundesliga club, Fortuna Düsseldorf.
The new deal will keep the former Germany U20 international at Fortuna Düsseldorf until June 30, 2024.
Iyoha has been on the books of Fortuna Düsseldorf since 2011 after he was poached from Bayern 04 Leverkusen, rising through the ranks before signing his first professional contract five years later.
The 23-year-old is delighted to extend his stay at Fortuna Düsseldorf, saying: “It’s no secret that I have a special bond with Düsseldorf and Fortuna. The city is my home, Fortuna is my club.
“I would like to thank those responsible, especially Uwe Klein, and my team-mates.
“During my illness I received a lot of support and encouragement from the club. That helped me a lot. For me, the contract extension is a particular highlight of the difficult past. “
Iyoha has played 80 games combined for Holstein Kiel, FC Erzgebirge Aue and Fortuna Düsseldorf in the 2. Bundesliga, scoring twelve goals.
