–Nigeria international searches for another club
Victor Obinna’s proposed switch to Palermo has hit the rocks, Italian website Tuttomercatoweb is reporting.
After holding discussions with the leadership of the Rosanero, the Nigeria international failed to reach an agreement with the Serie A outfit and this has put an end to the move.
The likes of Fenerbahce, Kayseri Erciyesspor, Atalanta and Parma have all been reportedly linked with a move for the 27-year-old but it is believed Italy is his preferred destination.
To substantiate that argument, Victor Obinna was spotted in Italy last week alongside fellow Nigeria internationals John Ogu and Eddy Onazi.
The winger-cum striker has been told by Lokomotiv Moscow chiefs that he is not in the plans of manager Leonid Kuchuk this season, despite 10 months left before the expiration of the agreement binding the parties.
After playing for domestic clubs Enyimba and Plateau United, Victor Obinna moved to Italy in 2005, where he first played for Chievo Verona before transferring to Inter Milan.
He had also represented West Ham, Malaga, Lokomotiv Moscow, and spent the second half of last season on loan at Chievo Verona.
