FK Sarajevo on brink of deal for Harmony Ikande

29 June 2015, 10:05Soccer Laduma

Lagos - Bosnia and Herzegovina champions FK Sarajevo are on the brink of announcing the signing of free agent Harmony Ikande, news24.com has been informed.

If The Maroon-Whites should go ahead with the acquisition of the former Nigeria U20 international, it would be the sixth country he has played professionally after spells with clubs in Italy, Hungary, Spain, Ukraine and Israel.

After starting his career in Europe with the youth team of AC Milan alongside Nnamdi Oduamadi, Ikande enjoyed three consecutive loan spells with Monza, Poggibonsi and Extremadura.

Without playing an official game for The Rossoneri, the midfielder moved to Hungary to join Budapest Honvéd in the summer of 2011 but later transferred to Beitar Jerusalem after falling out of favour at the Bozsik Stadion.

Between 2012 and 2014, he played for Israeli clubs, including Hapoel Ashkelon and Hapoel Tel Aviv, apart from a brief stint with Ukrainian side Hoverla Uzhhorod, whom he represented in the first half of the 2013 - 2104 campaign.

The 24 year old showed FK Sarajevo manager Dzenan Uscuplic a glimpse of his potential in the 5 - 0 defeat of FK Borac Jelah in a pre - season friendly on Saturday.

Harmony Ikande could feature in the Champions League for the first time in his career if he puts pen to paper on a deal with FK Sarajevo in the coming days.
