Wikki suspend Razak deal



Nigeria Premier League (NPL) club, Wikki Tourists are yet to decide on signing midfielder Wasiu Razak from academy side, Aljazeera.

Tourists held talks with Aljazeera on Monday and are hoping to finalise a deal for the 17-year-old before the end of the week.

But Wikki Tourists' manager, Yusuf Gimba on Tuesday told supersport.com that the teenage midfielder may be forced to wait till the second stanza of the coming NPL season before he would secure a deal.

“We are at present having a serious headache about him (Razak) as he came when we have concluded our recruitment for the new season.

“He's a fantastic young player and we may have to keep him till Week 9, but we would conclude before the week runs out,” Gimba said to supersport.com.

Razak was instrumental for Wikki Tourists as he provided the only goal that condemned the Nigeria's flying Eagles to a 1-0 defeat in a friendly game on Sunday.
