Stephen Keshi has accepted terms offered to him by the Nigeria Foootball Federation (NFF) and is set to be named coach of the Super Eagles.
A member of the NFF’s technical committee, Paul Bassey revealed that Keshi has accepted to continue as head coach of the three-time African champions.
“He (Keshi) has accepted the terms. Keshi has agreed to come back to work and that’s where we are for now,” Bassey told supersport.com.
When quizzed on the situation, Keshi refused to make a definite statement.
“My dear brother, I was offered a contract by the NFF and it is not for me to make any statement on this.
“The NFF is the body to make a decision on this and that is that,” Keshi said on Monday.
Keshi was first named head coach of the Super Eagles in 2011 but his contract lapsed after the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
