Aide Brown Ideye (born 10 October 1988) is a Nigerian footballer who plays as a forward for Ukraine Premier League side FC Dynamo Kyiv.

Club career[edit]

Ideye began his career with Bayelsa United, before moving to Ocean Boys.[2] Ideye was a member of the Ocean Boys team that won the Nigerian Premier League. Ideye moved in January 2008 to Europe and signed with Swiss club Neuchâtel Xamax. Before this move to Switzerland he was on trial in the Netherlands with Willem II Tilburg,[3] but was not signed. After three years with Xamax, Ideye left Neuchâtel to sign for French club FC Sochaux.[4]

On 6 July 2011 he signed a five-year deal with Ukrainian side Dynamo Kyiv. He made his first appearance on 16 July against PFC Oleksandria and scored two goals. In his second game for Dynamo Kyiv he scored two goals again against FC Obolon Kyiv.[5] On 7 August 2012, Ideye scored the winner in a Champions League qualifying 3rd round second-leg game against Feyenoord, in which Kyiv ultimately progressed. He also scored against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the second-leg of the play-off round. Mönchengladbach won the game 2–1, but Kyiv progressed to the Champions League group stage on a 4–3 aggregate score.

International career[edit]

He represented his country at the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada. He played five games in the tournament and scored one goal against Costa Rica.[6] In May 2010 he was called up to the senior side as part of the 30-man team for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. He wasn't part of the final 23-man squad, but he was subsequently called up after a knee injury to John Obi Mikel ruled him out of the competition.[7] He was called up to Nigeria's 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.[8]

He was selected for Nigeria's squad at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.[9]
