Clubs ready to swoop for Echiejille - reports

17 August 2015, 09:50

Abuja - Clubs in France, Spain, Belgium, UAE, Qatar and China have lined up deals to sign Nigeria defender Elderson Echiejille, News24 understands.

Echiejille, 27, hasn't been a regular fixture for Ligue 1 side AS Monaco since he pitched tent with them from Braga SC.

He has made a total of 17 appearances and scored one goal for the club.

The Nigeria defender is reported to be considering a move from the club he joined in 2014.

This has reportedly put clubs in France, Spain, Belgium, UAE and Qatar on high alert.

Reports also say a top Chinese club is readying to whisk away the attack-minded full back.

Echiejille began his career at Bendel Insurance and moved to Europe in 2007, joining Rennes where he was mainly a reserve. He spent four seasons in Portugal's top flight with Braga before returning to France to join Monaco in 2014.

A full international for Nigeria since 2009, he played at two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, winning the 2013 edition, and also played at the 2010 World Cup.
