Enyeama Signs New Two Year Contract With Lille

By Adeboye Amosu‎:

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has penned a new two- year deal with French side, Lille Metropole, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.

The former Enyimba goalie's previous deal was due to end in 2017 but Lille has now extended his contract to ward off interest from other clubs. 

Enyeama joined Lille in 2011 from Isreali outfit, Hapoel Tel Aviv but struggled to pin down a regular shirt at the club and the following season was loaned out to another Isreali side Maccabi Tel Aviv.

He returned to Lille after his loan stint with Maccabi and has since become their first choice goalkeeper.

"LOSC is pleased and proud to announce the extension of Vincent Enyeama's contract for two more seasons. The Nigerian goalkeeper of 33 years will continue to defend the goal for LOSC until 2019,"the club announced on their website.

Enyeama made 39 appearances in all competitions for Lille last season.
