Echiejile Terminates Contract With Finnish Club HJK Helsinki

Former Super Eagles defender, Elderson Echiejile, and Finnish club HJK Helsinki have parted ways three months after the player’s arrival at the club, reports Completesports.com.

Echiejile only linked up with the Veikkausliiga champions in March this year penning a one-year contract with the club.

“HJK and Elderson Echiejile have canceled their contract, and Elderson is longer part of the HJK team. We thank Elderson for his contribution to the team and the club and we wish him all the best in the future. Thanks, Eddy!,” reads a Tweet on the official Twitter handle of the club.

Echiejile made five league appearances for HJK during his short spell at the club. He scored twice and provided one assist.

The left-back will look to secure a move to another European club for the 2019-20 season.

The 31-year-old once had stints at French clubs Stade Rennes and Monaco, as well as Portuguese outfit, Braga.

He was a member of the Super Eagles side that conquered the continent at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
