–German div. two side wants Eagles star to boost their promotion bid
One-cap Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun is set to join Germany’s second division side, SV Darmstadt 1898.
According to SL10, Balogun who is currently out of contract, trained with the team on Wednesday and looks to have impressed coach Dirk Schuster who is in search of a right-full back.
And he could face his former club Fortuna Dusseldorf on Sunday if he eventually signs for SV Darmstadt who are second on the log after eight matches, one point behind leaders Ingostaldt.
Darmstadt are seriously pushing for promotion to the Bundesliga and 26-year-old Balogun has experience of promotion to the Bundesliga helping Fortuna Dusseldorf to the German top flight in 2011/2012 season.
Balogun’s only game so far for the Eagles was in a 0-0 draw against Mexico in an international friendly match in the USA prior to the World Cup.
He however injured himself just 20 minutes after coming on, eventually missing out on the World Cup.
