The management of Go Round FC have raised alarm over what they have termed sharp practices surrounding one of their players.

Godwin Dede, a goalkeeper with Go Round FC joined from Delta Force on a free transfer and signed a three-year contract with the team in January 2019 but as soon as the season ended in April he decided to pitch tent with Sunshine Stars, with permission from the club.

“After negotiations broke down, he left Sunshine for Shooting Stars who opened up negotiations with our club for his formal clearance and transfer,” a source at the club told

“Talks between us and Shooting Stars broke down as they could not pay what we wanted, but rather than our player returning to us, there are indications that General Manager of Shooting Stars is about to use his contact at the League and Federation to secure provisional clearance for him to play for them.”

in a statement press statement issued by Go Round FC, they say Godwin Dede is their player who has two years left on the three-year contract he signed with them.

They add that by the time he left the club in the middle of May after the league ended in April he was not owed any salaries and should have returned after Shooting Stars failed to close a deal for him.

After our relegation to the NNL, a couple of our players decided to leave and we granted them permission but a lot of them have returned because the clubs they decided to pitch tents with couldn’t agree with our teens, they returned to us.

If a player wants to leave and talks break down, he is obliged to return to his parent club.

“Shooting Stars should not do anything that will bring the game to disrepute. We are watching. And we are putting the league on notice,” the statement continued.

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
