Enyimba lose another star to Pillars



Defender Samuel Tswanya has joined Nigeria Premier League (NPL) champions, Kano Pillars for an undisclosed fee.

Tswanya, supersport.com has learned, sealed his move to the Kano club on Friday from six-time champions, Enyimba.

The right-back has been handed a two-year contract by Kano Pillars.

The former Niger Tornadoes' man has resumed training immediately with the Nigerian champions for the new season.

"Samuel (Tswanya) has already resumed training with us. We signed him two days ago. This is part of strengthening the team for the new season as we will compete on three fronts - the league, the Caf Champions League and the Federation Cup," said a club official.

Tswanya becomes the second high profile player to leave Enyimba for Kano Pillars in the second consecutive season.

Last term, Mustapha Musa joined Kano Pillars from Enyimba in the off-season and formed a superb partnership in the holding role with 2012 League Bloggers Awards (LBA) Player of the Year, Reuben Gabriel.

Kano Pillars have also signed Emmanuel Bivan and Samuel Mathias from Kaduna United and Gombe United respectively.
