He scored 24 goals in 48 matches for Vienna last season, including two goals in two games against Roma in the Europa League.

Kayode, who has also played for ASEC Mimosas in the Ivory Coast, FC Luzern in Switzerland Maccabi Netanya in Israel. He represented Nigeria at the 2009 and 2011 Under-17 and Under-20 World Cups respectively.

He was previously linked with Newcastle, but the deal obviously didnt go through.
