European clubs in for Oboabona



Nigeria defender, Godfrey Oboabona is now attracting interests from European clubs, supersport.com was informed on Monday.

But the clubs showing interest in Oboabona are undisclosed at the moment.

The Ondo State Football Agency executive director, Mike Idoko, who also takes charge of administrative duties at Sunshine Stars, revealed that the clubs are from England, South Africa, Turkey and Ukraine.

"There have been so many enquiries from different clubs especially in Europe and South Africa. But we cannot mention any of the clubs now as there are no concrete deals from anyone.

"The enquiries are coming from clubs in England, Turkey and Ukraine as well as South Africa. But we will wait as we want the best for Godfrey as he served the club so well," said the OSFA official.

Idoko also said Oboabona is a player under contract with Sunshine Stars and that the club will not stand in the way of the player's ambition to move abroad.

"Godfrey is our player as he has been with us from his days at Rising Academy up to now. He's played for only Sunshine Stars in Nigeria in his career. We've transferred a number of players abroad and we won't stop Godfrey from moving so far we deem the contract good enough for him and the club," Idoko told supersport.com.

Oboabona, 22, played all 540 minutes for Nigeria at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, where they emerged champions after defeating Burkina Faso 1-0 earlier this month.
