Ekpe Udoh has officially signed a two-year deal with Virtus Bologna, the Italian club announced on Sunday.

Udoh will remain with Virtus until the end of the 2022/23 season and returns to Europe for the first time since 2017.

In the last two seasons, the American center with Nigerian citizenship played in the Chinese CBA, with the Beijing Ducks and the Beijing Fighters, respectively.

Ekpe Udoh was one of the best big men in the EuroLeague back in 2017, helping Fenerbahce claim the championship.
