Ugo Ukah will not renew FK Cukaricki contract

22 June 2015, 08:56

Abuja - Out-of-favour Nigeria international Ugo Ukah will not be prolonging his contract with Serbian SuperLiga side FK Cukaricki, despite the lure of Europa League football.

The central defender enjoyed success with FK Cukaricki last season, helping the capital side win their first title since their formation 88 years ago - the Serbian Cup - and finish third in the SuperLiga.

''I am not taking the option of extending my contract, my contract is over with Cukaricki. I had a good season,'' Ugo Ukah told news24.com.

''My contract with them will officially expire on 30th June and I am waiting for further instructions from my agent.''

Ukah had spells with Reggiana, Pro Vasto, Queens Park Rangers and Widzew Lodz before, his move to The Cukaricki Stadium in the summer of 2014.

The Parma - born stopper appeared 13 times in the SuperLiga and was cautioned five times.
