Tavriya Simferopo let duo go



Two Nigerian players, Dele Adeleye and Abdulwaheed Afolabi, have left Ukrainian side, SC Tavriya Simferopol and on sour notes.

Afolabi was first to leave the club months back but has now been awarded $100,000 by Fifa over a contract dispute with SC Tavriya Simferopol.

According to reports in Ukraine, the 20-year-old striker had taken Tavriya to Fifa's dispute resolution chamber to settle a breach in contract and won the case on October 25.

The $100,000 awarded to Afolabi are outstanding remuneration and compensation following a breach of contract by Tavriya.

The Ukrainian club were also slammed with a ban from signing new players for the next two transfer windows.

“Furthermore, a ban from registering any new players, either nationally or internationally, for the two next entire and consecutive registration periods was imposed on the Ukrainian club for having breached the relevant contract without just cause,” read Fifa’s decision to Tavriya.

Afolabi had earlier been slammed with a six-month suspension by the Ukraine Premier League and fined $540,000 in spite of wanting to terminate his four-year deal for breach of contract by Tavriya.

With Fifa's ruling on the matter he has now been finally been disengaged from the contract with Tavriya.

On the other hand, Adeleye left the club also claiming a breach of contract.

Reports in Ukraine say the 23-year-old centre-back is distraught of having been frozen out of the first-team.

In the off-season, Tavriya blocked Adeleye from joining German champions, Borussia Dortmund owing to disagreement in transfer fee.
