Uche, 28, leaves Almeria after their relegation from La Liga and has agreed a two-year deal with Xamax.

"Yes, I have joined Neuchatel," Uche told KickOffNigeria.com. "I had two offers from Spain, one from England, one from Turkey and one from China, but I decided to come to Switzerland after I spoke to the coach.

"He is Spanish and he played a big role in convincing me. He told me their plans and how they want to build a strong and competitive team here, and that is better for what I want."
