Warri Wolves slam €1m on Mba



Supersport.com can report that Nigerian top flight side, Warri Wolves, are willing to sell Afcon hero, Sunday Mba only for the sum of €1 million (around N210 million).

Wolves have also included a 20 percent sell-on clause in any future deal for the Super Eagles' striker.

The 24-year-old striker, who scored the winning goal at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final against Burkina Faso earlier this month, has already been linked with Bayer Leverkusen, Dinamo Zagreb and OB Odense.

"The transfer fee for Sunday Mba has soared right now. The club are very willing to cash in on him at the moment as he was a key player for Nigeria at the Nations Cup.

"Also there are a number of clubs in Europe seeking to sign him following his superb display at the Nations Cup against Cote d'Ivoire in the quarterfinal and Burkina Faso in the final. The (Warri Wolves) club chairman is insistent on doing business for the player but for nothing less than the asking fee of €1 million," a club official informed supersport.com.

The striker was close to sealing a move to rivals, Enugu Rangers but that switch now looks dead.

Mba has made 10 appearances for Nigeria's Super Eagles and has scored five goals.
