Daniel Akpeyi ruled out of Chippa United's tie against Chiefs

05 August 2015, 17:06

Cape Town - South African based intermediary Mohammed Lawal is optimistic that Warri Wolves keeper Daniel Akpeyi will complete his move to Premier Soccer League side Chippa United in the coming days.

''Daniel Akpeyi has been in South Africa since last week. Warri Wolves are in talks with Chippa United and an agreement will be reached very soon,'' said Mohammed Lawal to news24.

''The transfer can be concluded at any moment. The International Transfer Certificate doesn't take a whole day to be issued.''

Having said that, the big news for The Chilli Boys faithful is that the Nigeria international will not be selected for the game at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium (Port Elizabeth) against Kaizer Chiefs because he has not been granted a work permit yet by the authorities.

''But it's impossible for him to make his debut against Chiefs because there is also the issue of work permit that must be sorted,'' Lawal added.

If the I’s are dotted and T's crossed, Chippa United will officially announce the signing of Daniel Akpeyi on a two-year deal.

A product of Gabros International, the 29-year-old had stops at Nasarawa United and Heartland before joining Warri Wolves in 2014.
