President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has said that Venezia defender, Tyronne Ebuehi, will join the Super Eagles camp in Garoua on January 6 ahead of the Africa Nations Cup tournament.

Ebuehi, who was initially not in the 28-man list for the tournament was drafted in by interim coach Austin Eguavoen after injury to Cyprus-based defender Shehu Abdulahi.

“We spoke with Ebuehi and he was excited to join the squad,” Pinnick said in an interview on Arise TV on Monday.

“We noticed we had some lapses in the defence and we had to draft some more players in that department.”

Ebuehi has made 14 appearances since he joined Venezia on a season-long loan deal from Benfica this season.
