Abutu, Osagie to become Blue Angels



Jonah Abutu and Monday Osagie are close to joining Nigeria Premier League side, Sharks for the 2012-13 season.

Both players travelled with the Blue Angels' contingent to the city of Calabar, where the team are expected to hold pre-season camping before the new term gets underway.

Sharks' secretary, Cyril Wite, confirmed the presence of both players in the team to supersport.com but revealed that no contract has been agreed yet with Abutu and Osagie.

"You know the NPL has not cleared this yet so we can't say they have signed for us. But they are part of our team that just arrived in Calabar for camping.

"No deal yet in place for either players as this is still subject to approval," said Wite.

Osagie is touted as a direct replacement for Senegalese centre-back, Ousmane Pape Sane.

On the other hand, Abutu who featured for rival Premier League club, Lobi Stars, last season should fill in the vacant central midfield role left by Kola Anubi who joined Warri Wolves in this off-season.
