Enyimba of Aba and U-23 Eagles midfielder, Kingsley Sokari, has exclusively informed Completesportsnigeria.com how his protracted deal with Tunisian side, Esperance, crashed.
“I’m no longer going to play for Esperance, the deal has collapsed and as we speak, I’m in Aba ready to continue from where I left off,” Sokari informed Completesportsnigeria.com.
Sokari, a former Flying Eagles star, arrived in Nigeria Tuesday and headed for the People’s Elephant base in the commercial city of Aba ahead of Sunday’s match day 22 clash with Lobi Stars.
He revealed that failure on the part of the Tunisian side to meet the asking price of Enyimba was reason the deal collapsed.
“What really happened was that they did not reach understanding with Enyimba as regards transfer fee," he explained.
“Yes, so many amounts had been quoted in the media in the past but I don’t think any of them was either here or there.
“So, when they didn’t agree terms with my club, I had to come back."
