Namo close to Nasarawa loan deal



Former Kano Pillars' striker, Victor Namo is on the verge of completing a loan move to Nigeria Premier League (NPL) team, Nasarawa United.

Namo, 24, told supersport.com this week that he has agreed contract terms with the Solid Miners to play on loan ahead of the 2012/13 Premier League season billed to kick off on February 16.

The forward has been training with the Solid Miners for about a month now before an agreement was reached.

"I've been training with them for a month now. ?hey were all saying I should come for trials but I want to know how much they will pay me for a loan move.

"I had to forfeit my pay at Kano Pillars to get my clearance because they (Nasarawa United) have been talking to me before the end of last season. We haven't completely concluded yet on the deal as I don't know what they are waiting for. But we have agreed on the signing-on fee and I want to play on a loan deal," Namo said to supersport.com.

The former Yobe Desert Stars man explained that he opted to join the Solid Miners as it was the "major offer" before him.

"After leaving Kano Pillars last season, the deal from Nasarawa United was the major offer I had and I still want to play in the top flight since they will compete in the Premier League," said the striker.

Namo spent six years with current Nigerian champions, Kano Pillars and won two Premier League titles with them.
