NFPL MID-SEASON TRANSFER
Heartland goalkeeper Ebele Obi is in talks with FC IfeanyiUbah in what could well be the most dramatic transfer in the Nigeria league so far after he was sensationally assaulted by the owner of the Nnewi club recently.
Ebele Obi, older brother of Chelsea star Mikel, and billionaire Ifeanyi Ubah were both sanctioned by the league for incidents after a recent league game.
The goalkeeper was punched by the FC Ifeanyi Ubah owner after he attacked the referee.
The Heartland shot stopper has already called off a plan to sue Ifeanyi Ubah.
But AfricanFootball.com can now confirm that Obi could have a transfer sealed with the Nnewi club “in days”, with the goalkeeper available for their weekend trip to face Niger Tornadoes.
“Ebele Obi has been discussing with Ifeanyi Ubah over a potential move and he was in Nnewi yesterday and the deal could be completed in the next few days,” a source informed AfricanFootball.com
The ‘Anambra Warriors’ have already completed the signing of former Golden Eaglets skipper, Fortune Chukwudi.
