Transfer: Enyimba, Spanish team chase ABS striker



The young striker, who has scored eight goals in eight matches in the Nigeria National League (NNL), is wanted by a host of other NPFL clubs.

ABS Administrative Secretary, Funmi Owolabi, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Ilorin that many clubs in Nigeria and one in Spain are after the signature of Danbani.

She said ABS had received offer letters from many of the clubs and that they would respond to the correspondences in due time.

According to ABS Coach Abubakar Hassan, Danbani who scored four goals against Giodano FC of Kano on Sunday in Ilorin is believed to be one of the most prolific strikers at the moment.

The ABS Director of Football, Alloy Chukwuemeka, told NAN on Thursday in Ilorin that it would be difficult to keep a youngster like Danbani because there were pressures here and there to sell.

“I will not like to talk too much; we are still keeping so much to our chest.

“If we get good offer, we will sell to the right club but I can assure you, he won’t go cheap.

“You know in ABS, we give young boys a lot of chance, we have many of Danbani in other areas too,” Chukwuemeka said.

The Nigeria Premier League Club Owners’ scribe declined comments on the foreign club interested in the player.

“One of the agreements with the Spanish team is to keep everything low until all formalities are concluded.

“We will respect such agreement, so I’m sorry I cannot tell you.

“Other clubs in the NPFL have made enquiries, but Enyimba seems the fastest and the most serious for now,” Chukwuemeka added.

NAN learnt that the NNL side had received an offer letter from Enyimba for the youngster.
