Ehizibue joins Udinese

Four-year contract with an option to extend for the Dutch full-back

The Udinese right flank has been strengthened by the arrival of Kingsley Ehizibue from Germany, after he agreed to a permanent move to the club from 1. FC Koln on a contract that runs until 30 June 2026 and includes an option to extend for a further year.
The right-back can play anywhere down the flank is gifted with impressive technique alongside physical attributes that make him an ideal player to cope with the tactical rigours of being an Udinese player.
Kingsley was born in Munich, Germany on 25 May 1995.
He moved to the Netherlands at the age of just two and settled in the city of Zwolle, where he started playing for PEC.
After going up through the ranks, Kingsley made his first-team debut in 2014/15, going on to make four appearances in league and cup.
During the following season, he burst on to the scene with PEC Zwolle, notching four goals in 26 appearances in the Eredivisie. Three goals came his way in 2016/17 across 31 matches in league and cup.
Kingsley’s assist tally started shooting up in 2018/19 when he registered eight set-ups.
In summer 2019, he moved to Cologne where he was an immediate starter as he went on to feature in 32 games in the Bundesliga and German Cup.
In 2020/21, he made a total of 23 appearances while his figure stood at 18 last season in which he helped the team clinch a place in the Conference League.
At the start of the season, the right-back made three appearances for 1. FC Koln before heading to Udine: one in the Bundesliga, one in the German Cup and one in the Conference League.
Ehizibue also has one Netherlands U21 cap to his name.
Welcome, Kingsley!
