Awakan departs Enugu Rangers, attracts interests

Goal have been informed that the midfielder has parted ways with the Flying Antelopes due to lack of game time and he is weighing his options as regards his next move

Azeez Awakan has left Nigerian champions, Enugu Rangers due to lack of playing time.

The 2015 Federation Cup Most Valuable Player joined Rangers late in 2016, but was starved of action.

Goal scooped from the management team of Awakan that three Nigerian topflight sides, including MFM FC, are already circling for the midfielder's signature.

"It's confirmed that Awakan has left Rangers due to not getting enough playing time and it's interesting that three [NPFL] clubs have made move to sign him," the source told Goal.

"I don't want to reveal the identity of the other two clubs yet due to obvious reasons but as for MFM, we've started discussions. It has gotten past showing interest but the player's wages is the only problem why Awakan may not join them.

"The amount of money they are offering doesn't meet the player's demand but let's see if they will up their offer.

"Awakan is expected to make a loan move to a club in the NPFL till the end of the season as there are interests from Croatia, Hungary and South Africa [which we could explore] in June."
