Super Eagles defender, Elderson Echiejile, has rejoined AS Monaco for the forthcoming French Ligue 1 season, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Echiejile was part of Nigeria’s squad to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but didn’t feature in any match for the Super Eagles who crashed out at the group stages of the tournament.
“I’m back to my base for preparation for the new season which comes with its challenges,” Echiejile told CSN.
“Being part of the World Cup squad was a big achievement but not playing was not my making.”
Echiejile who has played on loan at Standard Liege, Sporting Gijion, Sivasspor and Cercle Brugges is however noncommittal on his future plans.
“I still have a contract with AS Monaco and I’d be deciding that in the coming days,” he said.
The 30 year old still has a year left on his current deal with AS Monaco.
