Ezekiel Set For KV Kortrijk Switch As Free Agent

By Johnny Edward:
 
Nigerian striker, Imoh Ezekiel, has agreed to join Belgian side, KV Kortrijk on a two-year deal after he was released from his contract with Spanish side Las Palmas, his representative, Liameed Gafaar has told Completesportsnigeria.com.
 
Ezekiel joined Las Palmas in January on a two year deal after he terminated his contract with Turkish club Konyaspor, but he failed to sparkle with Spanish side who were relegated at the end of the Spanish La Liga season in May.
 
He featured in 12 games without scoring a goal.
 
Gafaar told CSN that Ezekiel will complete a move back to Belgian side, KV Kortrijk as soon as Schengen entry visa is issued.
 
“A deal is close for him (Ezekiel) to join KV Kortrijk and we are waiting for his visa so the formalities will be completed,” Gafaar told CSN.
 
Ezekiel previously featured for Standard Liege where he played 80 games and scored 29 goals before he moved to Al -Arabi in Qatar. He also played on a season loan for Anderlecht in Belgium before he featured for Konyaspor and Las Palmas.
 
Should Ezekiel complete his move to Kortjik, he will link up with compatriot Abduljaleel Ajagun at the club.

  • Another talented wasted by Nigeria Football this boy missing World Cup 2014 was just not fair. Now look. Very sad

  • Ugo, I so agree with you….

    I had my money on this guy becoming a Nigeria legend with his pace, power and precision but only 1 senior cap to his name defies belief.

    Having said that, I don’t think his career choices helped his progression in the national team.

    Going to Qatar may have enriched his pocket, it also impoverished his chances in the national team.

    By the time he went to Spain, he had lost some of his edge.

    Players like him, Moses Simon, Ahmed Musa, Kayode O. and Igbohun represent the pace and power Nigeria can harness upfront. I am happy that we tend to produce really lightening quick players with decent techniques .

    He is still relevant for another year or so if he keeps fit

    It beats my imagination why a then “19 year old” with his career on the ascendancy, will move from Belgium to Qatar…??? For what…? Money…? Ok now he’s made the money and lost a career. 2 seasons of money making in the gulf and he has no career any longer at 25. I hope the money he made in qatar will be enough to last him for the rest of his life. He had a very good olympics, how he couldnt build on that is quite surprising. The guy should just try to remain in Belgium till he gets his mojo back. Globe trotting isnt really doing him a lot of good at the moment…Anderlecht, Konyaspor, Las palmas, now kortijk…. 4 clubs in 4 years. Dude really needs to settle down to rediscover himself. Great great talent tho.
