Sharks woo Isaac Loute



Supersport.com can report that Nigerian-born Benin Republic international, Isaac Loute, is close to signing for Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club, Sharks.

Loute, 21, is already in Port Harcourt waiting for the transfer window to re-open in Week 9 to allow him complete his switch to the Blue Angels.

But the Beninoise striker is expected to conclude talks with the club before signing a contract this week that will see him stay at the Port Harcourt club for the remainder of this season.

The former Gateway FC man has already trained twice with Gbenga Ogunbote and his team in the past days.

"Isaac Loute is in Port Harcourt and is waiting for the team to return from their trip to Bauchi where they faced Wikki. He has been involved in two training sessions and have impressed the coaches.

"So it is just left for us to finish the necessary paperwork and hopefully we should sign him before the end of this week or at the latest, next week," a Sharks official divulged to supersport.com.

However, Sharks will have to sort out paperwork for Loute with Beninoise club, Union Sportive Seme Krake, where he spent the last two months before travelling to Nigeria.

Loute has played for Nigerian top flight, Lobi Stars, in the past.
