Aruwa now Warri bound



Sani Aruwa, a former Kaduna United and Enyimba midfielder is close to a deal at Premier League side, Warri Wolves.

SuperSport.com learnt that the attacking midfielder has been training with the Warri side since last week.

Interestingly, Aruwa is no stranger to the gaffer, Maurice Cooreman, who was his coach at Kaduna United.

Aruwa told SuperSport.com that he was unsatisfied with the situation at the former African champions, which prompted a desire to change base.

" I wasn't having a nice time at Enyimba so I left when Cooreman invited me to Wolves. My former team gave me a temporary clearance to Enyimba and they're aware of my presence in Warri.

"I've been training with the team. I'm enjoying my time here and confident a deal will be sealed in the coming days," he said to SuperSport.com

Aruwa's arrival makes him the third former Kaduna United player after Jude Aneke and Victor Ezema at the Caf Confederation Cup campaigners.

The trio played for Kaduna United in the 2011 Caf Confederation Cup under Cooreman.

Aruwa, a former Under23 international spent time on trials at Turkish lower division sides, TKI Tavsanli Linyitspor, Erciyesspor and Boluspor, last term.
