Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal that Lukman Zakari will be presented to the fans of Sfaxien of Tunisia tommorow.

An agreement have already been drafted between the club of the 17 year old Unity Football Academy and Sfaxien which will be sent to the Nigeria academy to study before they append their signature to the agreement which will come to effect when Zakari clocks 18 in December.

He will however be presented to the fans tomorrow where a short press conference will be held to formally announce his capture after over three months of chasing him.

The much publicised medical won’t hold anymore until he signs the dotted lines in December on a proposed five year deal but he will however remain with the reserve side of the team playing matches for them as well as having training sessions with the main team twice in a week.

17 year old Zakari helped Nigeria lift the U-17 World Cup in Chile playing in all of their games and almost made the Nigeria U-23 team to the Africa Nations Championship in Senegal if not for an injury picked up during the U-17 World Cup.
