New signing Junior Ajayi to cost CS Sfaxien $1.2m

16 September 2015, 17:24

Lagos - Dream Team VI striker Junior Ajayi , 19, will arrive in Sfax next week to begin his adventure with his new club, Club Sportif Sfaxien.

After close to one month of negotiations between 36 Lion, who own the player's economic rights, and CS Sfaxien, the parties finally agreed terms few hours before the close of the Tunisian transfer market on September 15.

Tunisian intermediary Mahmoud Ouaddeni had embarked on the 2,859 - mile journey from Tunis to Brazzaville last week with one thing in his mind: to convince Junior Ajayi to sign for the eight - time league champions, knowing that his stock will rise if Nigeria qualifies for the football event of next year's Olympic Games.

''Junior Ajayi is already a player of CS Sfaxien, he has signed a three - year deal and will join the club after the Games.

''He will be in Tunisian next Wednesday,'' a source privy to negotiations told news24.

Including commission paid to intermediaries, transfer fee and the attacker's wages over the length of the contract, CS Sfaxien's bank balance will reduce by $1.2 million for signing the Nigeria youth international.
