Nigerian striker Ikechukwu Uche has announced an agreement to play for Mexican club Tigres UANL.

Uche, 31, announced via his official Twitter account that he had reached an agreement to play with the Liga MX side.

Tigres are three-time champions of the Mexican top division and are looking to strengthen their attack as they hope to challenge for the league title.

They are also in the semi finals of the South American Copa Libertadores where they will play against Brazilian side Internacional of Porto Alegre in July. Their hope is to become the first Mexican side to win the title.

The Monterrey-based side, that plays at the 43,000 capacity Estadio Universitario San Nicolás de los Garza, Nuevo León, also signed French forward Andre-Pierre Gignac from Marseille during the week.

Uche moves from Spanish side Villareal, where he scored 34 goals in three seasons, to the Mexican club. He has previously played for Recreativo Huelva, Getafe, Real Zaragoza and Granada and won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria.

The details of the contract have yet to be made known to the media.
