Heartland goalkeeper Ebele Obi has stopped training with his club so as to force a move to Nigeria premier league rivals FC IfeanyiUbah
The goalkeeper has agreed personal terms with FC IfeanyiUbah, but has faced a stumbling block in his current club, who placed a hefty N10m price tag on him to scare off the ‘Anambra Warriors’.
But in a bid to force the move, Obi has stopped training for close to a week, it has been confirmed.
“Ebele Obi has not trained with the rest of the squad in the last few days, almost a week now,” the official said. “I know he is in Owerri now, because some people have spotted him but he has not been training.”
Heartland and FC IfeanyiUbah have been at loggerheads since the early part of the season, when ironically, Obi was attacked by FC IfeanyiUbah owner, Ifeanyi Ubah, in a league game in Nnewi and despite the public courting of the player by the latter, the ‘Naze Milionaires’ have refused to play ball.
