Free agent Ike ThankGod denies completing move to Abia Warriors

12 June 2015, 07:51

Abuja - Ike ThankGod has played down reports that claimed he has signed a contract with Abia Warriors, but admitted that talks are ongoing with the Nigeria Professional Football League side.

The central defender is on the lookout for a new employer after he ran out of contract at Omani club Fanja, with whom he won the silver medal at the  end of the 2014 - 2015 season.

''I am still speaking to Abia Warriors and we have not finished negotiations. I have been training with them since Tuesday,'' Ike ThankGod told news24.com on Wednesday night.

''I don't know how many years deal I'll be offered, because we are still talking.

''I was told the Chairman of Abia Warriors traveled. When he comes back I hope to conclude with them.

''I am not in contact with any other team apart from Abia Warriors as nobody knows I'm back.''

After the 30 year old was deemed surplus to requirements by Warri Wolves at the end of last season, the stopper was courted by Enugu Rangers, Abia Warriors and Heartland before pitching his tent at Fanja.

He starred for Arugo FC, Heartland and Sunshine Stars in the domestic championship before his stint at the Warri Township Stadium.
