Africa’s brightest young talents in Nigeria football are set to take centre stage over the course of the next five months as the Nigeria Premier Football League kicks off this Sunday.

Here’s a look at one of the top young players to keep your eyes on during the league season:

Alege Toyin (Gombe United): Defender

Alege Toyin is a powerful central defender, who is predominantly known by many for his physical strength, pace, anticipation, ability in the air, and tackling, as well as his distribution, technique, and ability on the ball, which allows him to carry the ball out from the backline, or start attacking plays from the back with his long range ability.


Toyin has been described by Gombe United manager as a tactically intelligent and versatile player, capable of featuring as a centre or defensive midfielder due to his positional sense and his game reading ability.


Being a quick and strong center-back, along with his technical ability and distribution, Toyin was a very big threat to his opposition players especially when going forward to contest for set-pieces or assisting his team offensively last season in the Nigeria Premier Football League.


He’s expected to be a standout player in Gombe United’s extremely star-studded team. You’d be wise to pay him a few glances when Gombe United travel to Kwara United in their Group B opening fixture of the NPFL 2023 season next week.
