Lagos - Former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo is set to feature for Nigeria Premier League club FC IfeanyiUbah for the rest of the season.

“4 #NPFL clubs Akwa Utd, FC Ifeanyiubah, Kano Pillars & Wikki Tourists are bidding to land the former Super Eagles defender.

“Joseph Yobo to play last 12 #NPFL games this season as League Ambassador signed on by the LMC.”

But reports on Wednesday say Yobo is most likely to wear the jersey of FC IfeanyiUbah, whose owner was at his testimonial match held in Port Harcourt on May 27.
