Etor claims Akwa, Enyimba interest



Daniel Essien Etor has told supersport.com that two Nigeria Premier League (NPL) clubs are discussing with him ahead of the 2012/2013.

The clubs are Akwa United and Enyimba.

Etor, who is a free agent after his contract with Nigeria National League (NNL) side, Niger Tornadoes ran out last term, is currently recovering from an injury he sustained two months ago.

"I'm at home now because of an injury I sustained about two months ago. I've started training on my own anyway but I will soon be in Akwa United though I don't know yet if I will sign there because we are still discussing.

"I also have an offer from Enyimba as well and until discussions are concluded I can't say I've signed for any team yet," revealed Etor to supersport.com.

Reports in May this year suggested that Etor had signed for another NPL club, Warri Wolves but the attacking midfielder said he was only courted by the club but that the deal fell through.

"No I didn't sign for Wolves. Yes they were interested in me but my club then (Niger Tornadoes) weren't willing to let me go when the season was in progress," he said.

The ex-ABS player, who can also play as a wide man, is relishing reuniting with his former coach, Justin Tenger, now with Akwa United or former teammate, Sibi Gwar who just signed for Enyimba.
