Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation’s Players’
Status/Arbitration Committee has given “unconditional clearance” to Flying
Eagles goalkeeper Dele Alampasu to play for any club of his choice.
At its meeting in Abuja, the Committee, headed by NFF Executive
Committee member, Babagana Kalli, ruled that the contracts that the player, who
was in the Nigeria U-20 squad to the just-ended FIFA U-20 World Cup in New
Zealand, signed with both Future Stars Academy, Lagos and Football College,
Abuja are not binding as he signed as a minor.

will only be entitled to training compensation/solidarity mechanism in
accordance with the FIFA Regulations on Players’ Status and Transfer, 2014,”
ruled the committee.
The career of the long-limbed goaltender, who was selected
as the Best Goalkeeper of the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup that Nigeria won in the
United Arab Emirates, had been on hold as both Future Stars and Football
College claimed ownership.For
