–Ex-Eagles captain set to stage comeback
Former Nigeria skipper Joseph Yobo has told AfricanFootball.com he is set to stage a comeback to the game as he is studying offers from China and Qatar among others.
The 34-year-old Yobo has not played again since his contract with Turkish champions Fenerbache was cancelled by mutual consent in the summer.
“I will soon return to the game after I have sorted out some of the things I am now doing,” said Yobo in reference to his foray into party politics recently.
“I have several top clubs in Europe who just want to have a look at me before they sign me but I have been engaged outside the pitch for some time now so I have not been able to go over to them.
“I also have offers from China and Qatar. I hope to soon take a decision on my career when I have sorted out some of the things I am doing at the moment.”
He added: “I am a free agent but some of the transfer windows in some of the countries have closed, but we will see what happens soon.”
He said his family will play a big role in his final decision.
“My wife will soon put to bed in the United States of America and so I have to consider such when taking my decision,” he revealed.
Yobo, who has won a record 101 caps for Nigeria, has featured for Everton and Norwich City in the English Premier League as well as Olympique Marseille and Standard Liege.
