Warri Wolves ‘offers’ Mba to Euro clubs
Warri Wolves are “hawking” African Nations Cup hero Sunday Mba to clubs in Europe even though the ownership row with Rangers has yet to be resolved.
Wolves was the club Mba played for in the last domestic season in Nigeria before the player went ahead to negotiate a return to former team Rangers few weeks before the AFCON in South Africa.
At the end of the tournament, where Mba gained cult hero status by scoring the goal that won Nigeria the trophy, the 24-year-old midfielder became hot cake in the international transfer market.
And MTNFootball.com has now gathered that Wolves has gone ahead to open communication with one of the clubs who have indicated interest in the player.
An agent, at the instance of the eastern European club, had got in touch with the chairman of Wolves, Pinnick Amaju, who referred him to Emmanuel Ibru, who apparently is a consultant to the club on international transfers.
After discussions, the agent could not continue with the transaction because Wolves refused to issue him an official mandate to broker the deal.
Few days later, the ownership of Mba became contentious, with Rangers claiming he is their player.
However, Wolves would go ahead to contact the eastern European club to negotiate the transfer of the player.
