Lagos - Super Eagles forward Gbolahan Salami has headed to Serbia in a bid to secure a contract with a first division club.
Salami left the Super Eagles camp in the United Arab Emirates as he did not travel with the rest of the squad to Dubai for a friendly against Yemen, “to go and firm up details of his contract,” a statement from the team’s media officer Ben Alaiya reads.
The player had recently told News24 Nigeria that he will move from Warri Wolves to a foreign club in January.
