Top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Godwin Obaje says he is aware of interest in his services from Tunisian side Sfaxien, but he prefers a move to Israel.

The Wikki Tourist forward who has 14 goals in the Nigeria Professional league while admitting to knowing about Sfaxien interest, went a step further by revealing he is keen on a move to Israel due to the perseverance of the agent involved.

“Am aware of Sfaxien interest, I was told by my club chairman but there’s the interest from Israel which am keen on due to the agent involved in the deal” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” He sent his contact man in Nigeria to come to Bauchi, apparently not satisfied with the response he got, he came all the way from Israel to see me when we were in Abuja ahead of our tour to Spain, that has in a way turned my focus from other options at least for now”.

According to the player, a decision on his future will be made in agreement with Wikki Tourist, as he feels he owed them trust and loyalty due to their faith in him.

” I have advisers, who are handling offers on my behalf but am a Wikki Tourist player and any decision on my transfer will have to be a deal that the club agrees to, I owe them loyalty as they have done a lot for my career”.
