Career

In January 2002 Eromoigbe signed a contract with Bulgarian club Levski Sofia and joined Cherno More Varna in a year-long loan move, alongside his compatriot Emanuel Baba. He made his league debut in a 2–1 defeat at Spartak Pleven on 28 April. For the most part of his time at Cherno More, Eromoigbe was a substitute, making only eight A PFG appearances. In December 2002 he returned to Levski.

Eromoigbe made his Levski debut on 28 September 2003, in a 0–0 home draw against Cherno More. He became a regular fixture in the Blue team during the following 2004–05 campaign, partnering Daniel Borimirov in the centre of midfield and playing a number of important matches. Eromoigbe started in Levski's 2005 Bulgarian Cup Final win over CSKA Sofia on 25 May 2005.

In the 2005–06 season, Eromoigbe helped Levski reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup. On 9 September 2006, he scored his first goal at club level in an 8–0 win over Marek Dupnitsa.

He started the 2007/2008 season with Levski but on 26 February 2008 he was bought by the Russian FC Khimki.[1] On 23 July 2008 Eromoigbe was on trial at Derby County, however Paul Jewell decided not to offer him a contract.

Eromoigbe was released by Khimki on 15 September 2009[2] and returned to Nigeria to play for Warri Wolves.[3] In the transfer window of January 2011, he signed a contract with Cyprus club Anorthosis Famagusta FC.

Eromoigbe was out of contract with Alki Larnaca when he was signed by Beroe manager Ilian Iliev on 5 January 2012.[4]
