Midfielder Dayo Ojo has rejoined Sunshine Stars from Sudanese club Al Merrikh.

In November, Ojo agreed a four-year deal with Al-Merrikh, joining the Sudanese side from Sunshine Stars for an undisclosed fee.

But that deal was cut short when Sunshine Stars on Thursday announced that Ojo has rejoined the Akure-based club.

Ojo is joined by highly rated rock solid defender, Durand Rock Thuram Gerald, and seven others as the second stanza of the Nigeria Professional Football League resumes on Sunday.

Ojo played for Al-Merrikh during their CAF Champions League double leg tie against Rivers United in Port Harcourt and Omdurman.

The Sudanese side ousts the Nigerian club 4-3 on aggregate.
