Esperance yet to meet Sharks valuation of Christian Pyagbara

11 June 2015, 11:19

Abuja - Esperance have opened talks with Sharks over the transfer of Flying Eagles striker Christian Pyagbara but, the two parties are yet to reach an agreement after two days of negotiations.

Mahmoud Ouaddeni, the Tunisian intermediary that recommended Pyagbara to the Blood and Gold, is hoping talks are concluded in the next two to three days.

''We are still waiting for Sharks. Club Africain also want Christian Pyagbara but we are negotiating with Esperance,'' says Mahmoud Ouaddeni to news24.com.

''In the next 2 - 3 days, we are hoping to conclude the transfer but Sharks are making problems about the transfer fee.

''They should be thinking of the progress of the player. I have told them that the player should be in Tunisia.''

Ouaddeni is now appealing to Sharks to lower their financial demands as Esperance want to wrap up the deal before the big game against Al Ahly.

''If all is fine, we hope to sign him before the game against Al Ahly on June 28. But we hope Sharks agree and be flexible.

''He is expected to sign a three year deal with Esperance when an agreement is reached,'' he concluded.

The 26 - time Tunisian champions have been monitoring the transfer situation of Christian Pyagbara since March after he put himself in the shop window at the 2015 African Youth Championship.
