Nigeria striker Emem Eduok has stated that he is not afraid of being sanctioned by world football governing body FIFA because he has not done anything wrong.
The 20-year-old, who is moving from Nigeria’s Dolphins, originally signed a long-term contract with Sarpsborg only to sign a three year deal with Esperance barely a week later.
The one cap Super Eagles player told BBC Sport: “I am not scared of [a Fifa sanction] because I have not done anything illegal or wrong.
“I just want to resume my professional career with Esperance because I have the blessing of my club to go there.”
Eduok went on to claim he was deceived into signing the Sarpsborg deal.
“I went to Norway, I signed the contract there but the agent did not get the clearance required from my present club Dolphins for me to talk or sign a contract.”
Dolphins say they have ratified the striker’s move to Tunisia,mbut Sarpsborg sporting director Thomas Bernsten claims the player’s transfer rights were owned by an academy and not the Nigerian side.
The row is likely to be referred to football’s world governing body Fifa.
