Glo Premier League Champions, Enyimba Football Club of Aba, have signed goalkeeper Theophilus Afelokhai from Kano Pillars, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The move could now pave way for one of the Aba-based club’s goalkeepers, Moses Ocheje, to link up with newly promoted, Niger Tornadoes Football Club of Minna.
Afelokhai, a former Nigeria U-23 Eagles star, who is referred to as one of the best goalkeepers in the Nigerian top flight will face stiff competition to earn a regular place at his new club with home-based Eagles shot stopper Femi Thomas already established as the number one choice.
Enyimba can also call upon Chijoke Ejiogu, the veteran goalkeeper who has defied age to continue to churn out impressive displays for the Peoples Elephant, as well as former junior international, Joshua Enaholo.
The Kadiri Ikhana-led side recently signed box to box midfielder, Dare Ojo and Olufemi Oladapo from relegated clubs Kwara United and Bayelsa United respectively.
