Fabiyi to leave Enyimba

Enyimba striker, Babington Fabiyi, has revealed he is close to joining Ukraine second tier side PFC Alexandria and believes a deal could be finalised in the next couple of weeks or days.

The former schoolboy international told supersport.com that he had successful trials at the club and has returned to Nigeria to help secure his International Transfer Certificate.

"I have been undergoing trials with Alexandria recently and they have agreed to sign me," he told supersport.com.

"They have been in contact with Enyimba, but there has been some delay in issuing my clearance so I had to come over and see if my presence could hasten the process."

Fabiyi said he enjoyed his time at Enyimba and was looking forward to similar success with his new club.

"Last season was okay as we challenged for the title and in the end made it to the continent so I don’t have any regrets," he said.

"I've always preferred to play in Europe, so I hope to make the best of this move."

Fabiyi joined Enyimba as a free agent last season after unsuccessful trials with Russian giants, CSKA Moscow.
