Enyimba pay N3.5m for Abalogu



Six-time Nigerian champions, Enyimba have completed the signing of ABS' striker, Andrew Abalogu for the sum of N3.5 million, supersport.com can report.

The petite forward made his debut last season in the Nigeria's top flight football scoring nine goals for the Saraki Boys.

His impressive performances last term also saw him win the Best Rookie of the Year award at the maiden edition of the League Bloggers Awards (LBA) in Lagos in October this year.

Abalogu, however, expressed happiness with his mega move to the People's Elephant.

“I am so glad to be here and I want to win the NPL title with Enyimba. It's painful to have left a club like ABS who helped my career because without them, I don't think there's any club that would given me a chance considering my age.

“There's no player up to 25 years at ABS and that is their secret and I want other clubs to emulate them. I miss all my (ABS) teammates and their love would continue to be in my heart,” Abalogu said to supersport.com.

The 20-year-old will now have to face serious competition for a starting role from last season's NPL leading scorer, Sibi Gwar and Ukeyima Akombo.

Sibi Gwar joined Enyimba from relegated club, Niger Tornadoes while Akombo teamed up from Nigeria's last season Caf Champions League representatives, Sunshine Stars.

SuperSport.com can also report that another ABS' man, Yau Hassan is on the verge of joining Cup holders, Heartland pending official approval from ABS.

“I have signed a N2.5 million contract here with Heartland but ABS have not released my clearance,” Hassan told supersport.com.
