By Sab Osuji:

Kano Pillars goalkeeper, Theophilus Afelokhai, has emerged on the shopping list of Enyimba International ahead the 2015/2016 domestic and continental seasons, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.

Enyimba were crowned Nigerian top flight champions for a record seventh time at the weekend after a goalless draw with Sunshine Stars in Lagos.

The People's Elephant will make their 10th CAF Champions League appearance next year and want the best players for the campaign.

Completesportsnigeria.com gathered that goalkeeper Afelokhai is wanted to give the pair of Chijioke Ejiogu and Femi Thomas competition.

"We will try to see how we can get Afelokhai. He's one of the exceptional goalkeepers in the league and experienced on the continent," an Enyimba official told Completesportsnigeria.com.

"We'll be careful and thorough in our recruitment. Only the best will do for us."

The official who doesn't want his name to be mentioned said they would love to sign Warri Wolves winger, Stanley Dimgba, but fear that may be resisted by Wolves who will also be playing in the CAF Champions League next season.

"There are a couple of Warri Wolves players we would fancy so much. Players like Stanley Dimgba and even Oghenekaro Etebo.

"But because Wolves will also be playing in the (CAF) Champions League, I don't know whether they could be allowed to join us," the source added.
