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.For
