Super Eagles midfielder, Paul Onobi, has threatened to report Nigeria Professional Football League club Sunshine Stars Football Club of Akure to the Federation of International Football Federation after the club refused to release him, which has affected his move to Finnish club, Kuopion Palloseura, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The combative midfielder recently signed a one-year deal with the Veikkauligga side, but is yet to make his debut for the club due to Sunshine Stars' delay tactics.
The former Enyimba player informed Completesportsnigeria.com that he was cleared by the Owena Waves to join KUPs and that he is surprised they are yet to allow him complete the deal.
He said KUPs has written several letters to the management of Sunshine Stars on the issue without getting any response.
"I learnt Sunshine Stars have declared me wanted, that's very funny because I joined my new club (KUPs) with their consent," Onobi told Completesportsnigeria.com from his base in Finland.
"My clearance states I can go to a club of my choice, but now they have refused to sign off on the deal.
"KUPs have contacted Sunshine a number of times, but they did not respond. For now, I have decided to take the case to FIFA.
"Enyimba were owing me some money before I joined Sunshine Stars three years ago, but they traded the money for my clearance, with the management of Sunshine Stars then promising to pay me the money.
"For the three seasons I spent at the club, they didn't pay me the money. I guess the new management at the club are not aware of this fact.
"I have all the documents with me and I will send everything to FIFA."
