Lagos - Chairman of Enyimba FC Felix Anyansi Agwu saved the
team from what would have been a transfer logjam with Esperance of Tunisia,
over the deal of Kingsley Sokari.
Sokari signed the dotted lines with the Tunisian giants on
the 21st of June on a deal reportedly worth three million pounds, after he
agreed personal terms and passed the medical tests of the club.
However, Enyimba pulled the plug on the deal when Esperance
refused to pay the agreed transfer fee between the two parties, despite several
reminders which were ignored by the Tunisian giants.

The six time Nigeria league winners would have been
outsmarted by their Tunisian champions if not for their chairman, who brought
in his wealth of experience in dealing with foreign teams on issues of
transfers, by refusing to release the players International Transfer
Certificate (ITC) until the fee is paid.
Esperance piled pressure on Enyimba to release the ITC of
the 20 year old but, the chairman not wanting to suffer the same fate as
Dolphins, who are yet to receive a full payment over the transfer of Emem
Eduok, suffered in the hands of the Tunisian giants.
Nigeria football academy Shuttle Sports are also currently
threatening to cancel the contract of their player Bernard Bulbwa, with same
team as they are yet to pay the agreed transfer fee.
Ironically Nigeria Under-23 striker Junior Ajayi of 3SC is
currently in Tunisia negotiating his transfer to the Tunis based team.For
