Italian Serie A side Sampdoria have deny having a valid contract with Nigeria Olympic defender Stanley Amuzie, despite claims by his agent Stephen Makinwa, that his client is contractually bonded to them.

Owngoalnigeria.com had a chat with Makinwa who denied reports that Amuzie is a free player, insisting that he is a player of the Serie A side, but a mail from an official of the club to Owngoalnigeria.com suggest otherwise.

” I read the story on your site, and I will like you to know that, Amuzie has no contract with Sampdoria, unless if his agent is talking about another club”.

” No deal was reached between Sampdoria and Amuzie, we had him on trial and a proposed five year deal was on the cards but the injury he suffered truncated it”.

Amuzie spent last season with Portuguese second division side Olhanense on a short term contract and following his showing for Nigeria at the Olympics, he is certain to leave the team this summer.

Owngoalnigeria will in the coming days bring an update on his next destination although initial talks has it that he could be heading to Eastern Europe.
