Morton manager Jim Duffy has signed Kudus Oyenuga on a one-year contract and could hand the former Dundee United striker a debut in Tuesday evening’s Betfred Cup clash at Hamilton.
The 23-year-old impressed following a week-long trial after Duffy initially noticed Oyenuga when he scored for Livingston against Ton during last month’s pre-season friendly.
Oyenuga could feature at New Douglas Park should international clearance arrive in time.
The London-born forward, who struggled to make an impact in two years at Tannadice, had been a free agent after leaving Hartlepool.
Duffy, speaking to gmfc.net, said: “He has been in for a week and trained very well amongst the boys and I just felt he fitted in and would be a different type of striker to what we have.
“Kudus can play with his back to goal because he’s a physically strong boy but he can also get in behind because he has a turn of pace.
“He can also play out wide as well as at centre forward, so gives us a couple of options at the top end of the pitch – and I think we need extra competition up there.
“We were certainly aware of Kudus playing against us at Livingston and he was someone we enquired about a couple of weeks ago.
“As we always do, we did our homework on his character with him being at Dundee United and on loan to Cowdenbeath.
“Everybody said he was a really good boy to have in the dressing room, so we decided to bring him in to have a look and from there offered him a contract.”
