Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, is still in search of a new club after a move to Nigeria Professional Football League club, Kastina United failed to materialise, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Ezenwa left Enyimba at the end of last season following the expiration of his one-year contract with the club.
The experienced goalkeeper struggled to secure regular playing time at the two – time African champions where he was third choice behind the duo of Fatau Dauda and Theophilus Afelokhai.
That didn’t stop him from earning regular call-ups to the Super Eagles despite constant criticisms against his selection.
He was part of the team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah and Enyimba international will receive $118,860 (N43,205,610) each from FIFA through the Nigeria Football Federation being their entitlement from the world football governing body’s profit-sharing deal with clubs whose players featured at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Ezenwa featured for both FC Ifeanyi Ubah and Enyimba FC at different periods that covered the 2018 World Cup qualification and the final tournament in Russia proper.
Talks over a move to Kastina United where he is certain to be the number one choice goalkeeper have now broken down over his salary.
Ezenwa demand of N700, 000 a week CSN learnt has put paid to the move and the Changi Boys have now settled for Niger Republic international, Kassaly Daouda.
He will now look to secure a move elsewhere in order not to lose his place in the national team.
