Imama Amapakabo
The
2015/16 Nigeria Professional Football League just rounded up but the agents and
managers have wasted no time as the transfer rumour season has opened up
immediately.
Naijafootball247.com
sources
brings to you the latest transfer rumours from the last week.
Abdul Maikaba to
Kano Pillars
Erstwhile
Wikki Tourist coach, Abdu Maikaba
reportedly resigned his appointment with the Bauchi based side last week after
finishing 3rd on the table.
Wikki
Tourist would play in the CAF Confederation Cup next year but after leaving the
side, Naijafootball247.com sources
spill out that Maikaba is currently in advanced talks to join up with Kano
Pillars.
Baba Ganaru to
Wikki Tourists
Meanwhile,
Kano Pillars coach, Baba Ganaru quit his side on the last day of the league and
it seems he will be trading places with Maikaba to join up with Wikki Tourists.
Paul Aigbogun to
Akwa United
Paul
Aigbogun has not had a moments rest since he joined Enyimba.
He
led the team to their worst league finish in 16 years but on the continent he
at least took them the group phase of the CAF Champions League, the best outing
by a Nigerian club in half a decade, yet the fans have turned against him.
It
seems his last two games for the club would be the Federation Cup semifinal and
final, if they make it through.
Not
taking chances, he has reportedly held discussions with Akwa United as a Naijafootball247.com source sighted him
in Uyo recently.
Imama to Chippa
United, Rivers United
The
biggest coaching name in Nigerian football since Kadiri Ikhana won the CAF
Champions League with Enyimba in 2003 has to be Imama Amakapabo.
After
winning the League with Rangers, their first in 32 years, it seems he will be
on his way out as he does not even have a contract with the Enugu based side.
The
rumour mills say Kano Pillars, Akwa United and even Chippa United in South
Africa.
But
the biggest of them all happened two days ago when the governor of Rivers
State, Barrister Nyesom Wike in a public dinner stated that he will get Imama
for Rivers United whenever he wants.
According
to Wike, referring to a statement made by the governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi
Ugwuanyi that Imama Amapakabor is not for sale, “You cannot buy what already
belongs to you. I told the governor to enjoy the services of a son of Rivers
State but we will take him back whenever we want.”
Stephen Odey to
Rangers
Stephen
Odey of MFM FC may just be on the books of Enugu Rangers next season.
A
close friend of the young player told Naijafootball247.com
that Odey so much wants to play under Imama Amapakabor’s tutelage at
Rangers and is waiting for the league champions to make a move for him.
Fred Obomate to
Rangers
Rivers
United’s dynamic play maker, Frederic Obomate is on the shopping list of league
champions, Enugu Rangers.
Obomate
played under current Rangers coach, Imama Amapakabor when he was an assistant
coach at Sharks and may want to re-unite with his former boss since Rangers
also affords him a chance to play in the CAF Champions League.
However,
the only snag may be his education as Obomate is a Civil Engineering Student at
the Rivers State University of Science and Technology.
Christian Pyagbara
to Rivers United
Enyimba’s
attacker, Christian Pyagbara may make a return to Port Harcourt after the
Federation Cup run with his side.
Pyagbara
has only played for Sharks and Dolphins in his professional career and is a
favourite of Rivers United head coach, Stanley Eguma.
