Ajibade, who moved from Nigerian side, Robo Queens to Europe, made the move to Madrid following the expiration of her contract with Avaldsnes in December 2020.
She has now become the second Nigerian to play for Madrid after Francisca Ordega who had a loan spell at the club in 2017.
Announcing the new deal on Twitter, Ajibade said it’s an opportunity for her to join the Spanish club.
It is a great privilege & joy for me to be joining Atletico Madrid Feminino.
It is an opportunity I will never take for granted, and I am ready to give my all to push this great club to even greater heights. pic.twitter.com/1Ep7IS1WQ1
