Nigerian defender Adeyemi targets summer move in England

03 July 2015, 15:53

London - With business now officially underway in the summer transfer window, Nigerian defender Michael Adeyemi is positive he would make the desired switch before the window closes going by the growing interests in his services from a number of bigger club sides.

Adeyemi, 21, has been the toast of fans in the lower division in England where he currently stars for Greenford United, but the centre-back who also plays from the right side of defence is set for a big move having undergone trials at some bigger clubs in the past weeks.

“I have had trials at a number of clubs including Crystal Palace,” Adeyemi who has stared for a number of clubs like Boehanwood, Walham Forest and Protouch soccer stated from his base in the UK.

With his eyes on playing for the Super Eagles in no distant future, Adeyemi stated that he hopes to join the likes of Leon Balogun and Willam Troost-Ekong who before now were in the diaspora but have now become key figures in the backline of the Nigeria national team.

“The dream remains to play for my father’s land, I know it’s a tough call but I am ready to give it my best shot, hopefully my dream will come true soon,” Adeyemi concluded.
