Two Super Eagles Players With Transfer Dilemmas In The January Window

2 mins read

Some Super Eagles players have had the going rough in their new clubs this season where they have been either bit-part players or have not been considered for any league action entirely.

These players would wish to leave for new pastures but could be be limited for different reasons.

Prime Business Africa presents here the two national team players wishing for new homes but could find it difficult to move on.

1. Emmanuel Dennis

Nottingham Forest’s Emmanuel Dennis has been tipped to leave the English club as he has hardly played plenty of matches for the club currently in the mid table of the Premier League.

A recent report in the English media specifically named Dennis as a likely target for an undisclosed Saudi Arabian, and MLS clubs.

Dennis has played 10 league matches, three Carabao Cup, and an FA Cup game for the club (in addition to two Championship matches for Watford this season).

After playing earlier this season for Watford before joining Forest in a £20m deal, Dennis will not be able to join another club this season because that would mean he would have played for three different clubs in a single season, which runs foul of FIFA rules governing transfers.

2. Daniel Akpeyi

The out of favour Super Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, could head out to Saudi Arabia or another team in South Africa in a bid to resuscitate his career.

Akpeyi was once the first and undisputed choice in the Super Eagles squad.

The former Orlando Pirates safe hands who is now on the books of another PSL side, Sekhukhune United but has not played a single game for them this season, could consider Saudi Arabia a new home as a former youth international goalkeeper, Okiemute Odah once did.
