Ibenegbu to stay on in Owerri



Midfielder Ikechukwu Ibenegbu has renewed his contract with Heartland for the 2012/2013 league season.

Ibenegbu is one of the core players that helped the Naze Millionaires win back to back the 2012 Federation Cup title at the expense of Makurdi-based side, Lobi Stars in Lagos.

The experienced Super Eagles' playmaker said he is staying back to add his quota to the side's quest for honour at the continent.

Heartland will hoist Nigeria's flag at the Caf Confederation Cup competition next year.

"I signed a new contract with Heartland on Monday for the 2012/2013 season.

"I'm convinced Heartland are well structured and ready to fight for titles next season with the calibre of players in their fold.

"I stayed back to be part and parcel of the squad to win the league and continental titles for the side in the coming season.

"We had a futile attempt at the league and Confederation Cup though we won the Federation Cup as consolation but this time we're going primarily at the league and Africa titles," he said to supersport.com.

Ibenegbu said he signed both for salary and signing-on fee at the Owerri-based side.

"I'm not aware of enhanced salary only the paper I signed on Monday has provisions for salary as well as signing-on fee and I think I'm satisfied with what was offered. It may not have met my expectation I think it's fine," he said.

Heartland are known to be considering the abolition of the vexatious signing-on fee in their contract dealings with players.
