Simon set for the UK



Supersport.com can report that a top target of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clubs, Moses Daddy-Ajala Simon, will soon be heading to an English Barclays Premier League club.

The 17-year-old is often referred to as Nigeria's Cristiano Ronaldo and recently attracted interests from NPFL top clubs including Kaduna United before GBS Academy in Jos, which own him, cancelled all transfer proposals to send out on loan to Nigerian clubs due to imminent travel plans to Europe.

Last month, supersport.com reported that European scouts made several visits to Jos to watch Daddy-Ajala and they have been impressed with what they have seen about the youngster.

A source hinted that his destination might be Liverpool FC, but after thorough investigation and words from a close family member, Daddy-Ajala's destination points to a move to a top London club.

"No he's not going to Liverpool. A London club have shown interest in him all the while and it is a top London club too," said a family source to supersport.com.

It is understood that the process to secure a permit for Daddy-Ajala under the special talent rule has been made in England.

In the application, it was stated that a close family member, who lives in the United Kingdom would act as his adopted guardian.

However, supersport.com's enquiries to get additional information from GBS Academy manager, Ibrahim Ahmed, proved difficult as he declined to comment on the imminent move.

"I’m under strict instructions not to discuss anything regarding this player. Very important people are involved, and they don’t want any media involvement until everything is finished," said Ahmed to supersport.com.

Daddy-Ajala has also been barred from speaking to the press, supersport.com has been informed.

Several attempts to contact the player's UK-based representatives have been to no avail as they have so far conveniently remained unreachable.
