Nigeria international and Skoda Xanthi defender Olubayo Adefemi has died in a car accident, aged 25.

Greek police said on Monday that Adefemi lost control of his car on the Egnatia motorway before crashing.

He was reportedly on his way from Xanthi to Salonika – in the Kavala region of northern Greece – to finalise details of his wedding.

The Greek Super League offered their condolences in a statement on Monday, saying: “The Super League and the entire Greek football family would like to express its deepest condolences and sympathy for the family of Olubayo Adefemi.”

Adefemi made 24 appearances for Xanthi in the Greek top-flight after signing from relegated French club Boulogne last July. He previously plied his trade for Romanian club Rapid Bucharest.

A former Nigeria Under-21 international, Adefemi made three appearances in the senior national side during Nigeria’s 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign but was looked over for the South Africa finals.
