13 July 2015, 14:54

Lagos - Incoming Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh is set to arrive Nigeria on Tuesday, ahead of his official unveiling as the new Super Eagles coach.

The 40-year old former Nigeria captain has been negotiating with the Nigeria Football Federation in London over replacing his former Nigeria teammate, Stephen Keshi, who was sacked two weeks ago.

Oliseh is expected to sign the dotted lines with the Glass House this week, when he arrives Nigeria.

He is expected to touch down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja at about 4pm local time, and is scheduled to hold further meetings with the top brass of the NFF.

Meanwhile, the former Borrussia Dortmund of Germany midfielder has hinted that he has already began work as the Super Eagles coach.

Responding to a fan on twitter who asked when he would resume, Oliseh said, “How do you know I have not resumed already? Cheers.”

He will be given a five-year contract and will work with Belgian Jean Francois Losciuto as his assistant.
