In the next two days, Otigba who has committed his
international future to Nigeria, will enter the final twelve months of his
contract with Heerenveen and a departure from the Abe Lenstra Stadium this
summer can't be ruled out entirely.

If I remain I want to play all the games played by the club next season and the
target is to end up at least six in the league.
''I am really looking forward to play for the Super Eagles.
I hope we beat Egypt in the pool and qualify for the African Cup of Nations,''
