Former Super Falcons captain Desire Oparanozie has extended her stay in France after it was confirmed by Le Bien Public that she will be joining French outfit Dijon in the coming weeks after quitting Guingamp.

Dijon are looking to maintain their stay in the top-flight for the second consecutive season and the signing of Oparanozie has been confirmed by Le Bien Public.
Oparanozie started her career with Bayelsa and Delta Queens in Nigeria Women Football League and winning two titles with the
Warri-based outfit before she joined Turkish side Luleburgaz 39 Spor in 2011.
She had also enjoyed a brief but unforgettable career stint in Russia, where she made her first-ever outing in the UEFA Women’s
Champions League in the colours of Rossiyanka in 2012.
