–Eaglets star is in Imo for personal reason
Golden Eaglets skipper Kelechi Nwakali’s report of being in the United Kingdom to undergo a medical with Manchester City are incorrect.
In February, SL10.ng exclusively reported that Manchester City had monitored his performances at the CAF U- 17 Championship.
Kelechi Nwakali’s agent , Klay Ekeocha, has not denied that The Citizens are exploring ways to sign his client but has put to bed rumours claiming that a deal is imminent.
”The report is incorrect. We are still discussing with Manchester City and Kelechi Nwakali is in Imo State (Nigeria) not the UK,” says Klay Ekeocha he said
”Of course, there has been contact with Manchester City, you know I have been in UK to arrange everything.
”It’s right to say Manchester City lead the race for his signature, but the race is not over yet. ”
The Belgian-based agent added that Nwakali is yet to attain the age of majority and can’t sign a professional deal with The Citizens or any other European club for that matter.
”I can not deny that we are getting closer to City lately, but nothing is signed. And we are discussing with a lot of teams.
”Kelechi is underage so there’s no rush for him to sign a contract with any club,” Klay Ekeocha concluded.
Agent Klay Ekeocha is best known for brokering the deal that took Nigeria international Kenneth Omeruo to Standard Liege in 2011.
